A mystery reigns: twelve beautiful, obedient princesses awake each morning with energies destroyed. The King is in a quandary. Is it a harmless enchantment? Or something bewitchingly dark and dangerous? Based in the original fairy tale “Twelve Dancing Princesses,” The Enchantment is a neoclassical story ballet that explores deeper themes that resonate in today’s world. Experience breathtaking dance, magical theater, luminous live music, and an array of enchantments.

“Exploring the rich layers of this fairy tale, steeped in the human experience of succumbing as a means of escape. The Enchantment offers the opportunity to discover more of our own human sensibilities.” - Lise Houlton, Artistic Director
