Blind Tiger

Sammons Center for the Arts

In celebration of its sixth season coming to a close, Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet invites you to put on your “glad rags” and step into the 1920’s with champagne cocktails, ragtime music and ballets from the era at Dallas’ "Old Pump House” (aka; The Sammons Center for the Arts).

The program features excerpts from some of the most well-known and impactful ballets of the 20’s including Les Biches (Ballets Russes, 1924), The Red Poppy (Bolshoi Ballet, 1927) and DNCB favorite, Le Train Bleu (Ballets Russes, 1924). With music by composers such as Francois Poulenc and Erik Satie and choreography by Bronislava Nijinska and Natalia Ryzhenko this will be a lesson in history, as well as a roaring good time. Also in the lineup is new work by DNCB Artistic Director Emilie Skinner with music of the era and costumes to match. 

The audience will be set up in the round, giving patrons an intimate perspective on the performance. With limited seating available, tickets will go fast! Upon purchasing your ticket, you will receive a secret password to be given at the door. Keep it safe!

“As our final performance of the season, we plan to go out with a bang,” says DNCB Artistic Director Emilie Skinner. “My goal is to offer unique experiences for the Dallas community and prove just how fun the ballet can be. We encourage everyone to dress up in 1920’s fashion. It’s not a requirement to get in, but the password is!”
