March 27 & 28 – 
Ballet Melange presents “Cipollino,” a ballet for all ages, based on the fairy tale by Gianni Rodari. Don’t miss this charming production for the whole family.

The little onion boy, Cipollino, and his vegetable friends live under the injustice of the Cherry-stocracy, guarded by the mean Prince Lemon and the overly proud Tomato. When they find that their friend, Pumpkin, does not have enough bricks to build his house, Cipollino and his friends decide to help him. With themes including the struggle of the underclass, good versus evil, and the importance of friendship, this visually appealing ballet is relevant with messages that all ages can appreciate.
Cipollino was first performed in Ukraine, in 1974. This production, directed by Elizabeth Shipiatsky, features the original score composed by Karen Khachaturian, storyline by Edvald Smirnov, choreography by Tatyana Andonova of the Sofia Opera and Ballet in Bulgaria, and guest artist, Sergii Sydorosky.
