So together with their friend Ollie, Abigail and Angus bravely shed past disappointments in order to find joy again.

A visual reckoning of one of the most famous choral arrangements of the twentieth century, Mauricio Wainrot’s signature work, Carmina Burana is a veritable feast for the senses. First performed by the Company in 2002, Carmina Burana is a work of unbridled passion that re-imagines traditional dances and techniques in a bold new way. George Balanchine’s Serenade has entranced audiences and dancers since its creation in the 1930s. Set to Tchaikovsky’s musical gem “Serenade for Strings in C Major”, the first original ballet created by Balanchine in America has become iconic in the world of dance.
