Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky brings this lost classic to life with a bold new staging, inspired by the archival notes of Marius Petipa. Experience pure comedic joy as Harlequin fights for his true love, Columbine, against her father who plans to marry her to a wealthy suitor. Full of madcap humor, incorrigible servants, and unforgettable characters, this tribute to the Italian commedia dell’arte tradition is not to be missed. Part of the Ratmansky Project.
