Twyla Tharp’s The Princess and the Goblin
Twyla Tharp’s critically acclaimed story ballet is a dazzling romp through a fantastical world where goblins reign and courageous children battle for good over evil.
Tharp, one of contemporary dance’s most eminent figures, has created a true delight for audiences of all ages. With its clever choreography, original costuming and dramatic staging, The Princess and the Goblin is, at its heart, a dynamic and captivating tale.
“Enchanting and funny…a powerful image of love. [Tharp] has succeeded here where so many have failed…a children’s ballet tightly woven with movement motifs and layered with symbolic meanings that adults can appreciate.” – New York Times, 2012
“…a heartwarming tale of humility and forgiveness.”—Winnipeg Free Press, 2012
