About this event

Akhmedova Ballet Academy will be performing excerpts from the ballet Paquita for its spring production. In full, this ballet is about a Romani girl named Paquita living in Spain. She saves the life of a French aristocrat named Lucien d’Hervilly from Iñigo, a Roma chief sent to kill Lucien. They fall in love, but Lucien cannot marry a lowly gypsy such as Paquita. However, Paquita discovers that she was kidnapped as a small child by gypsies who raised her, and that she is actually of noble descent meaning she can marry Lucien. The ballet ends in a great wedding scene full of joyous dancing.
