DON'T MISS!: DEUX-BLE PLAY
There’s nothing quite as American as a summer evening of baseball, hot dogs and . . . ballet? Monday night the Brooklyn Cyclones will join forces with the Brooklyn Ballet for “Ballet & Baseball: A History Lesson in Nine Innings.” Between innings, the troupe will perform short vignettes of moments in dance history, such as the introduction of Balanchine’s “The Nutcracker.”
If this doesn’t sound en pointe with the beer-guzzling ball fans, well, allow the ballet’s artistic director, Lynn Parkerson, to break it down.
“We’re always looking to bring ballet to spaces that you wouldn’t normally find it,” she says. “We want to bring ballet back to the people.”
Plus, she says, there are parallels between baseball and ballet everywhere — from the similar training to the diamond as “stage.”
Fans wearing tutus get a free hot dog and drink. Batter up!
MCU Park in Coney Island at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $9, brooklyncyclones.com
