    This retelling of Shakespeare's classic premiered at the Aspen Summer Festival in 1986 with choreographer Johan Renvall in the role of Mercutio and a cast of dancers from ABT. Said one critic, "Mr. Renvall found the essence of the well-known Prokofiev score and [turned] Shakespeare's tragedy into a striking one-act classic." The Star-Ledger applauded it as "A ballet with deft drama and telling movement." Another wrote simply, "A gem."

    To round out the evening, the company will perform a collection of popular selections from New Jersey Ballet's extensive repertory.

    Price: $15–$25

    This beautiful ballet has been an enduring favorite with adults and children for more than a hundred years. NJ Ballet fills the stage with familiar characters: Princess Aurora, the handsome Prince, the good Lilac Fairy, the wicked fairy Carabosse, Puss in Boots, Red Riding Hood, the Blue Bird and the Enchanted Princess. With its colorful costumes and scenery, and Tchaikovsky's soaring score, Sleeping Beauty is a splendid introduction to dance theatre for young children and grand entertainment for the whole family. It is performed with original "storyteller narration" so even the littlest theater-goer can keep up with ease.
