Blending music with dance, live animation, pre-recorded video, puppetry, and circus arts, A DANCER'S DREAM will blur the lines between reality and imagination, audience and performer. Using Stravinsky's THE FAIRY'S KISS and PETRUSKHA as the foundation for a new narrative, the production chronicles the story of a young woman (played by Sara Mearns) and her dream of becoming a dancer. Entranced by the music, she is "kissed" by the passion to become an artist and drawn into the performance, dancing to the complete score of THE FAIRY'S KISS. By the second act, she has completed her transformation into an artist, becoming Columbine in PETRUSKHA.

The production will turn New York's Avery Fisher Hall into a dream world through costumes, sets, staging, and live filmmaking. The film was produced in collaboration with theater and entertainment company Giants Are Small and features their signature technique of using a real-time feed of musicians, puppets, and miniatures projected above the orchestra.
