by BWW News Desk - Oct 26, 2016

Artistic Director Julie Kent is pleased to announce details of her first-ever commissioned work, Frontier (working title), choreographed by Ethan Stiefel for The Washington Ballet.

by Perry Tannenbaum - Oct 26, 2016

by Brodie Paparella - Oct 24, 2016

In its symbolism, Stephen Carleton's text weaves fantastic, but not unrealistic, circumstance with director Gale Edwards' Luhrmannian technicolour styling for quite the nihilistic spectacle.
