April 6th, 2017 - April 8th, 2017 | Uihlein Hall, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
Milwaukee Ballet pairs a charming classic with a cutting edge contemporary work in their spring double bill running April 6-9 at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.
This traditional production of La Sylphide is regarded as closer to the original than any other classical ballet being performed today. Mixing traditional classical dance and Scottish reels, this masterpiece blends humor and romance to tell the story of a Scottish farmer who receives an unexpected kiss from a “sylph,” or winged spirit, that changes his life forever.
Timothy O’Donnell’s new work, Sans Pleurer, showcases the physical and theatrical talents of the men of Milwaukee Ballet. This electric world premiere, which translates to “Without Tears,” explores the “boys don’t cry” philosophy and its long-term effects on men.
