Oceánica Ballet presents Sleepy Hollow & Lupita, an autumn-themed double bill featuring the tale of the Headless Horseman and a ballet celebration of life inspired by Día de Los Muertos.
Artistic Co-Director Robert Burns Lowman adapts Sleepy Hollow from Washington Irving’s classic 1819 short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Artistic Co-Director Edgar Lepe’s Lupita combines elements of classical ballet and folklorico ballet set to Mexican folk music.
The program will also feature a reprise of Lowman’s “In Shadow,” delving into the emotional associations of shadows.
