We’re so excited to share this special performance on Sunday February 4th at 2:00 pm for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivities, different abilities, or other individualized needs and their families/caregivers.

“Boys like me aren’t afraid of wolves!” Against his grandfather’s wishes, brave Peter sets out to capture a wolf and becomes the hero of his village. Based on the popular Russian folktale and set to Prokofiev’s world-famous score, this captivating ballet performed by the Rochester City Ballet will delight audiences of all ages!  Set to Tchaikovsky’s brilliant score, Rochester City Ballet also performs excerpts from “The Sleeping Beauty”. This crew of classic characters from Aurora’s Wedding celebration include the Blue Bird & Princess Florine, Puss-in-Boots, and the lovely Lilac Fairy.

Our Sensory Friendly Performance includes:

Absolutely no “shushing”!
Lower sound levels
Elimination of loud or jarring sounds, special effects, and flashing lights
