GISELLE is coming to Jorgensen on Thursday, March 27 at 7:30 pm, performed by the Moscow Festival Ballet.

This romantic ballet is about a beautiful peasant girl named Giselle who is driven to madness and dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover, Duke Albrecht, is betrothed to another. The Wilis, ghosts of jilted young maidens who died before their wedding day, appear at midnight to prey upon men by compelling them to dance until they die of exhaustion. They summon Giselle from her grave and target Albrecht for death, but Giselle's deep and abiding love ultimately frees him from their magic spell.

Here's a great event for the entire family… LUMA Theater of Light, on Sunday, April 27 at 2 pm.

Blending various physical disciplines with hi-tech luminous objects, LUMA creates a 'TechnoCircus' that is born in the shadows and has audiences sitting on the edge of their seats. By using the dark as a canvas and light as the brush, LUMA paints a story of how light occurs to humanity. Take the giant leap into a surreal world of light, color, and motion... where thinking stops and astonishment begins. Step to the precipice of your imagination as LUMA leaves your body in the dark and takes you out of your mind. 

Come an hour early for interactive glow-in-the-dark fun and games, including face-painting for all!

The Piano Guys are coming on March 28. The show sold out shortly after Christmas!  We just wish we had more seats for all the people that weren't able to get tickets!
