Our last “European” Derby Festival was when Queen Elizabeth came to visit in 2007; the 2012 edition renews the tradition by adding “Apassionata” — Europe’s most successful live-entertainment show — to the official lineup for the 138th Derby Fest. More than 40 horses, breeds ranging from muscular Bretons to nimble Freisians, will participate in a new program written specifically for North America called “The Beginning.” The two-hour show will feature stunt riding chosen especially for debut here in the horse capital of the world. The producers have enlisted the artistic guidance of Scott Faris, an award-winning stage director who has worked on shows on Broadway and in Vegas. —Simon Isham
