New York City Ballet: 20th Century Classics

Kennedy Center Opera House

April 7-11, 2015

Undoubtedly deserving of the title of one the 20th Century's most innovative and well-loved choreographers, George Balachine has left a legacy of beauty and form in his works that is yet to be outdone. In this trio of his best known works, his beloved New York City Ballet continues to display the level of talent and understanding in ballet that earned him the title of ballet icon.

The Washington Ballet: Swan Lake

Eisenhower Theater

April 8-12, 2015

Considering that Swan Lake's first outing in Bolshi, Moscow was given less than complimentary notices, ('neither the ballet nor it's ballerina were well received'), Swan Lake has gone on to conquer the world, becoming the must see of any company's repertoire, as the enchanting story and Tchaikovsky's sublime score blend together to create magic.

The Book of Mormon

Kennedy Center Opera House

June 16-August 16, 2015

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and top New York critic calling it the best new musical of the century, this is one show you won't want to miss.


Eisenhower Theater

July 7-August 16, 2015

The creators of the acclaimed Black Watch, director John Tiffany and choreographer Steven Hoggett, join forces with playwright/screenwriter Enda Walsh to bring the hit independent film Once, winner of a 2007 Academy Award for the hit song "Falling Slowly", to the stage.
