Join us May 13 at 4:00pm for a special Mother’s Day English High Tea ceremony and exhibition of original costumes in the Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery, followed by a screening of the London Children's Ballet dazzling new performance of Rumpelstiltskin in the Walter Reade Theater!
The London Children’s Ballet was founded in 1994 for young dancers ages 9 -16 to have the experience of performing in a professional production. Their 2011 ballet Rumpelstiltskin, performed at Sadler’s Wells Peacock Theater, London, England, is a gorgeous retelling of the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale. The performers are expressive and their dancing conveys with ease the unfolding story. With vibrant costumes and a tale full of humor and connivance, the ballet brings to life the competitiveness at a village fair and the grandeur of the royal court as the characters try to get what they believe they lack: the miller, recast as a milliner, wants prestige, the king wants gold, and queen wants her life and then to keep her baby, and Rumpelstiltskin who wants revenge. Ages 6+
