  • | 7:00pm - 10:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Ballet, Valentines
    - The Russian National Ballet is once again bringing the joy, beauty, and magic of “The Sleeping Beauty” to The Downey Civic Theatre for one performance only, Feb. 14th, Valentines Day.
    Last year’s almost sold out, exemplary performance by the well-known ballet troupe, was so successful, Theatre management is bringing them back for an encore.
    “The Sleeping Beauty” is often considered one of the finest achievements of the classical ballet. It’s 1890 debut, in St. Petersburg, Russia was a spectacular illustration of the Russian Imperial style at its zenith. Today it remains the cornerstone of The Russian National Ballet Theatre’s repertory.
    The current staging is directed by Elena Radchenko. With its large cast, fairytale settings, lavish sets, and glorious Tchaikovsky score, “The Sleeping Beauty” remains the very essence of classical balletic grandeur, with all the elements of an enduring fairy tale: romance, poetry, fate, goodness versus evil, and of course, love!

    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

    - In 2016 we add one day, February 29th, to bring our calendar more nearly into accord with the seasons. Under the Julian calendar of 46 BC every forth year was a leap year, on the assumption that it took Earth 365.25 days to orbit the sun. However, Earth's orbit period is actually 365.24219 days. For more than 1,600 years the Julian calendar was used, the calendar got out of sync with the seasons. The Gregorian calendar made just one small change: a leap day is added to the calendar every four years except for century years that are not exactly divisible by 400. Traditionally leap year is a time during which women may propose marriage to men.
