DC: Culture Night - Frontier @ The Washington Ballet


Join us for an extraordinary IVY Culture Night featuring the world premiere of The Washington Ballet’s Frontier, a work inspired by President Kennedy’s aspirations for America to be a leader of artistic, cultural, and intellectual excellence — and to be the first to land a man on the moon. Frontier is the first-ever commissioned work by visionary Artistic Director, Julie Kent, and will be choreographed by renowned American dancer and choreographer, Ethan Stiefel.

Before we take our seats for the performance, we will experience a private guided backstage tour of the Kennedy Center’s Opera House with a great group of IVY members. As part of the evening’s program, we will also be treated to two additional performances: “Lilac Garden (Jardin aux Lilas),” created by English choreographer Antony Tudor, who was credited as the master of “psychological ballet”; and a Company premiere of “The Dream,” a delightful interpretation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream created by Sir Frederick Ashton, one of the most influential dance figures of the 20th century.
