Why See Texas Ballet Theater - Pinocchio?
Reimagining the little boy made of wood
An enduring fable that has captivated both kids and adults since it first appeared over 130 years ago, Pinocchio finally makes it to the ballet stage in this inventive and exciting new production from Will Tuckett. A Co-production of Texas Ballet Theater and the National Ballet of Canada, Tuckett and composer Paul Englishby have breathed fresh life into Pinocchio's adventures, adding bold choreography and innovative stagecraft, making the story of the puppet who wanted to be a boy into an unmissable theatrical extravaganza.
Originally written as an Italian children's novel in 1883, the story of Pinocchio has transcended many art forms. Following the story of a man who so wishes for a child of his own, that he creates one made of wood. Granted life by the blue fairy, the naive and mischievous marionette discovers what it means to be a boy, and managing to cause uproar in both his life, and that of his father-creator's!
