Sleepy Hollow

February 18-22, 2015 | 7 Performances

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

From the creators of ALICE (in wonderland) and Hemingway: The Sun Also Rises comes a third exploration of iconic American literature – Sleepy Hollow. An atmospheric thriller, Washington Irving’s classic tale is now being told through the expressive and lush language of ballet. In a love triangle, the new school teacher, Ichabod Crane, finds himself smitten by a flirtatious beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, much to the displeasure of town rowdy, “Brom Bones” Van Brunt. A rivalry ensues and the ghostly “Headless Horseman” comes into play one fateful night. This program features original live music.
