'Snow White' ballet, with Gaultier-designed costumes, hits L.A.

Ballet preljocaj
Those who want to avoid the busy mutliplexes through the opening weekend of "The Hunger Games" might want to consider heading to the ballet instead -- especially if they happen to be fans of both high fashion and avant-garde dance.

That's because Ballet Preljocaj's production of "Snow White" -- with costumes designed by Jean Paul Gaultier -- hits town for three performances starting Friday evening. (In case you missed it, I wrote a piece about the ballet -- and the costumes -- that ran in Sunday's Calendar section.)

Although the ballet itself is not new -- it premiered in France in September 2008 and has toured Europe and Asia extensively -- it hadn't been performed in the U.S. until last weekend's March 17 stateside debut at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis.

Ballet Preljocaj's "Snow White," 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, 135 N. Grand Ave., downtown L.A. Tickets: $28 to $110. Information: (213) 972-0711 or
