Ballet-goers love a good love story; Cinderella and tutus were meant for each other. But American Repertory Ballet is reaching beyond fairy tales for a world-premiere love story to be staged April 21 and 22 at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton.
Douglas Martin, ARB’s artistic director, has adapted Jane Austen’s 1813 classic, Pride and Prejudice, for his Princeton troupe. Austen’s beloved tale of love and manners will get a fresh retelling through period dances like jigs, reels and the minuet, as well as classical ballet.
The Princeton Symphony Orchestra is providing live accompaniment.
Tickets: 609-258-2787 or mccarter.org.
