Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky brings this lost classic to life with a bold new staging, inspired by the archival notes of Marius Petipa. Revel in pure comedic joy as Harlequin fights for his true love, Columbine, against her father’s wishes. Full of madcap humor and delightful dancing, this tribute to the Italian commedia dell’arte tradition is a visual treat for the whole family.
