Head to The Kennedy Center this fall for a thrilling production of Paquita from one of the world’s most renowned ballet companies, Russia’s Mariinsky Ballet. A classic ballet tale from the 19th century, Paquita tells the story of a Spanish gypsy girl who rescues a French officer during the Napoleonic occupation of Spain. Act III’s “Grand Pas” wedding scene has become part of the ballet canon, and seeing the Mariinsky production will be a highlight of The Kennedy Center’s season.
