KENANSVILLE -- The Lipizzaner Stallions will be performing at the Duplin County Events Center on Tuesday, April 20, and Wednesday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. each night.

The world famous dressage troupe will sport all new music, choreography and special routines that have been incorporated into this anniversary edition of the traveling equestrian show, with a major emphasis on the historical background and foundation of the Lipizzaner breed, from its original breeding and use as a horse of war to a horse of nobility and aristocracy to a living form of equestrian art.

The current tour features 12 to 14 stallions performing selected maneuvers. The performances include spectacular leaps and maneuvers, once used by riders in saddle to protect and defend themselves on the battlefield, which are now preserved as an equestrian work of art.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster outlets. For more information, call the Events Center or Ticketmaster at 1 (800) 745-3000, or visit www. ticketmaster.com.
