Fairy Doll Enchants

Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida has been waiting to present this production of a ballet in two acts since 2007. Artistic Director and Chorographer, Vladimir Issaev, has been working on the idea of recreating and reviving this ballet since then.

“Fairy Doll”, originally “Die Puppenfee” by composer Josef Bayer and first performed in 1888, was one of the most successful productions in the late 19th century.

Issaev’s recreation and revival will be a gift to the audiences of South Florida.

“Bayer’s music is so inspiring and beautiful, I could not let his opportunity pass by, says Vladimir Issaev. I fell in love with every variation of this music and the more I researched, the more I felt South Florida’s audiences deserved a ballet production of this kind.”

The production counts on creative and imaginative costume designer Jorge Gallardo to make all dancers look like real dolls and the sets will be under the responsibility of painter and artist Elena Bond. Principal dancers Yoshie Oshima, Miho Yoshioka, Andrey Konkin and Brian Ruiz, will have the lead parts that will make its premiere an enjoyable ballet event.

After the sold out performances of The Nutcracker of Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, at the Parker Playhouse of Fort Lauderdale, audiences are looking forward to an alternative to attend with their family to see this adorable ballet.

There will be more than 60 dolls that will come to life on March 7 & 8 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts
