Ajkun Ballet | “Giselle”
The quintessential romantic ballet – Virtuoso, mysterious, gentle, and melancholy, Giselle is an intoxicating immersion in the romantic era. Restaged for Ajkun Ballet Theatre by Chiara & Leonard Ajkun after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot to the score of Adolphe Adam, the supernatural touch and lightness of the Wilis, and the splendid sophistication of Albrecht, Giselle makes even the music palpitate with her.

The Taming of the Shrew
Shakespeare in Lincoln Park
What could be more fun than sitting in a City park on a summer evening? The view takes your eye across the Hudson River to the foothills of the Berkshire’s, the marble temples of government to one side, 19th century homes to the other. Before you Puck, that mischievous sprite plays tricks on fairies and humans.

The season will be The Taming of the Shrew – August 5 to 21. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket, and a picnic if you like.

The Taming of the Shrew
The Taming of the Shrew- Two young noblemen, Grumio and Hortensio both long to wed the same beautiful young woman. Unfortunately, her wealthy mother will not let his daughter marry unless her hot- tempered sister, Katherina, also has a suitor. Luckily, Petruchio is looking for an affluent woman to marry, so Grumio and Hortensio convince him to try to woo the extremely volatile Katherina. Jacqueline Donnaruma directs The Taming of the Shrew using a combination of professional actors and as director of C.A.S.T. – Creative Arts at Steamer Ten some of her more promising students. The show features Alain Ackerman as Petruchio and Eleah Peal as Kate.
