Baba Yaga...A Sneak Peek
Neglia Ballet Artist, Back on Stage at Shea’s with Another Cast of Talented Dancers
The family friendly production, based on the Russian folktale and choreographed by Neglia Ballet Artists Artistic Director, Sergio Neglia, boasts an array of over fifty characters both spooky and sweet. Neglia himself plays the fearsome witch, Baba Yaga, who lures young Misha to her strange cottage built on chicken legs and prepares to eat her, aided and abetted by crows, skeletons, and other spooks. The excitement builds as friendly woodland creatures try but fail to rescue Misha–until finally…well we wouldn’t want to ruin the ending, come and see for yourself. October 26th, 7 pm at Shea’s Performing arts. Buy your ticket to find out how the story ends!
The production promises to be a treat for the entire family, with beautiful and eerie sets by David Butler and Mark DiVincenzo, colorful costumes by Donna Massimo, magical lighting affects by Dyan Burlingame.
