The Headless Horseman Ballet

Date Posted: Jul 20, 2015

Ballet Pensacola is bringing back the highly acclaimed, and now extended, tale of “The Headless Horseman,” created by Richard Steinert, on Oct. 30 and 31 and Nov. 6 and 7, 2015, during this year’s Foo Foo Festival.

Watch as the hero Ichabod Crane battles an evil witch and her cursed horseman to rescue his village from their evil doing. “The Headless Horseman” features a fully articulating horse ridden by performers, glowing cauldrons, and intricate village and forest scenes.

Extend your ballet experience by attending open rehearsals held Nov. 10-12 and a backstage tour. At open rehearsals, guests will learn more about the creative process and will have an opportunity to talk with the artists and choreographers.

Backstage tours will be offered on Nov. 6. Guests can view the sets up close and talk with Artistic Director Richard Steinert, Production Designer Lance Brannon, and Ballet Mistress and Costume Designer Christine Duhon.
