The Four Seasons


Few works are more iconic. For almost 300 years Vivaldi's breathless imagining of a single trip around the sun has captivated and inspired.

In March of 2017 the Kennedy Center brings to the stage the Company | E rendering. "To Sail Around The Sun" brings the astonishing artistry of the National Symphony Orchestra and the dancing and inspiration of Company | E for a week of concerts for the young and young-at-heart.

Presented on the Family Theater stage, "To Sail Around the Sun" promises to mix the magic of brilliant music brilliantly performed, today's most cutting edge techonology and the simple grace of gorgeous dancing.

Under the Direction of Co-Artistic Director Paul Gordon Emerson, and in collaboration with the artists of Company | E, and featured artist Amikaeyla Gaston, "To Sail Around the Sun" promises to be a journey through the natural world.
