The legendary role will be danced by leading dancer Mindaugas Bauzys who will retire from the stage at the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season.

The program will also feature live music from Community Music Works in a brand-new collaboration titled Bach Suites featuring choreography by Mihailo Djuric, Andrea Dawn Shelley, Spencer Gavin Hering, and Ty Parmenter.
