Lincoln Center Festival: The Little Humpbacked Horse

A beloved Russian fairytale is transformed into a two-act ballet, with choreography from Alexei Ratmansky (of American Ballet Theatre's new Nutcracker), a score from composer Rodion Shchedrin and dancing courtesy of the Mariinsky (Kirov) Ballet. Two matinee performances allow families to enjoy the journey of a faithful, if deformed, steed and Ivan the Fool—who is, in fact, the story's hero.
