Visit the Shelton McMurphey Johnson House this Mother's Day for an early afternoon tea before heading to the Hult Center to see the world premiere of Ballet Fantastique's Cleopatra. Learn about Victorian-era history and customs while enjoying delightful treats at an elegantly prepared table. Tea times include scones, savories, tea sandwiches, dessert and freshly brewed tea, of course. Prepaid reservations are required.
Cleopatra introduces all new and original choreography to tell the famed tale of the Egyptian queen, her Roman lovers and political intrigue of the ancient world. The performance is set to modern Levantine electronic sound played live to enhance the lavish world created onstage by dancers.
