Ballet Excel Ohio dancingMembers of Ballet Excel Ohio, an all youth dance group, provide a sneak peak of “The Magic Flute,” an original ballet choreographed by Erich Yetter based on the opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, for children of all ages at the Kent Free Library on Saturday, January 13 at 11:00 am.

“The Magic Flute” shares the adventures of Prince Tamino and Princess Pamina, along with their crafty companions, Papageno and Papagena. Together they must survive trials, romantic complications, and the scheming Queen of the Night.

Ballet Excel will perform the full ballet at the Akron Civic Theater in March.

No registration is required, but space is limited, so boarding passes will be passed out in the DuBois Children’s Reading Room starting at 10:30 a.m. For more information, please call Youth Services at 330.673.4414.
