Fairfax Ballet's "Doll Shop"
Twin dolls in a magical Parisian doll shop face being separated from each other forever. Can the other dolls devise a plan to keep them together? Find out in The Fairfax Ballet Company’s presentation of The Doll Shop, May 20 and May 21 at Centreville High School, Clifton, Va. Show times are May 20, 7:30 p.m. and May 21, 4:00 p.m.
Fairfax Ballet Company dancers will also premier original pieces of ballet and modern dance commissioned by the company. Senior Company dancers will present Bach Bourrees, choreographed by Naomi Widelski, and The Archetypes, choreographed by Kista Tucker. Junior Company members will dance Excerpts from Firebird, choreographed by Marcela Figueroa.
The Doll Shop is a classical ballet created by the Fairfax Ballet Company’s Artistic Director Margaret Virkus. Set in 1915, a Parisian shopkeeper's dancing dolls dazzle her customers with incredibly lifelike dances from around the world. But unbeknownst to the shopkeeper or her patrons, the dolls have a secret after-hours life and must figure out a way to stay together in the doll shop -- or risk being separated forever.
