See the Louisville Ballet Perform Shakespeare August 1
When you think of the ballet, you probably think of dressing up, spending tons of money and sitting in cramped little seats. That’s not going to happen when you see the Louisville Ballet perform “Tempest” this August. In fact, this performance is like no ballet you’ve ever seen before and like no ballet that most people have ever experienced.
“Tempest” is an original performance by the Louisville Ballet, inspired by Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest.” You’ll hear an original score and see an original performance. And you won’t be sitting in a cramped little seat wearing uncomfortable clothes, because this performance is being held in the middle of Central Park.
This is a casual ballet where you’re invited to wear your regular clothes, spread out on the grass and enjoy yourself with the whole family. Dine on delicious eats from food trucks, grab a drink at Will’s Tavern and enjoy the entire show free of charge. You don’t have to purchase tickets or wear black tie. All you have to do is show up and enjoy the show.
Everything begins at 6:30 pm in Central Park in Old Louisville, one of the city’s most well-known neighborhoods. The food trucks open for business promptly at 6:30, and the pre-show begins onstage at 7:15. The actual main stage production starts at 8 pm. Central Park is at 1340 S. 4th Street, right in the heart of Old Louisville. It’s also free to enjoy the beautiful sights in this neighborhood.
