While there’s no doubt that DC is a culturally rich city, full of people who appreciate everything it has to offer, it can still be argued that ballet is one of the most underrated offerings it has. If you’re open to discovering a whole new world of artistic expression, come see the Hamburg Ballet perform John Neumeier’s The Little Mermaid from now until April 2nd.
It has been 13 years since this venerable dance company has taking the stage at the Kennedy Center, which is the site of the upcoming performances. They’ll tell the story of a young woman following her heart, despite pain and suffering, in what is sure to be a captivating experience. Taking inspiration from expressionism and Japanese theatre, this might be the event that will turn you into a ballet fan.
Tickets range from $29 to $125. The John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is located at 2700 F Street, Northwest, in Washington DC.
