Three strikingly different ballets with the Richmond Symphony.
For the first time in professional history, Richmond Ballet will perform one of the most iconic scenes in the world of classical ballet, Marius Petipa’s mesmerizing ‘Kingdom of the Shades’ from the lavish, full-length ballet, La Bayadere.

Ma Cong’s Lift The Fallen, a stunning tribute to his mother, will be presented for the first time with live orchestration at the Carpenter Theatre this year after thrilling audiences across China during the Company’s 2015 tour.

Also gracing the Richmond Ballet stage for the first time, George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is a sultry, boozy tale of jealousy, mobsters and the seamy underbelly of New York City.
