Bard SummerScape kicks off Friday evening with the world premiere of Fantasque, a new ballet for dancers and puppets choreographed by Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award–winner John Heginbotham and designed by Amy Trompetter, Bread and Puppet alum, and founder of the Hudson Valley’s own Redwing Blackbird Theater.
The New Yorker calls Fantasque “a zany, surrealist story about the creation of the world.” Heginbotham says, “children, even young children, should get it.” This is enchanting fun for the whole family.
Celebrate the Hudson Valley summer before or after the show with drinks and fine dining in the Spiegeltent. Your ticket to Fantasque also includes after-hours dancing in the Spiegeltent on Friday andSaturday nights, beginning at 10 pm.
July 1 at 7:30 pm, July 2 at 7:30 pm, and July 3 at 2 pm—all in the Sosnoff Theater. Tickets start at $25.
Participate in a post-performance conversation with John Heginbotham and Amy Trompetter on July 2 or join us for a pre-performance talk on July 3 at 1 pm—both moderated by Bard College’s director of theater programs, Gideon Lester
Ride the SummerScape Coach from New York City to the Fisher Center on July 3.
