A Letter from the Artistic Director
I am delighted to announce Orlando Ballet’s 2018-19 lineup, which marks my 10th Anniversary Season. As I reflect on a remarkable decade, I am proud of the continued growth in all areas of the organization, the world-class caliber of our performances and the support that we have received from the community of Orlando.
Looking to the future, as Artistic Director, it is important to present programming that fulfills Orlando Ballet’s mission and provides the highest quality artistry. Each and every ballet selected represents the very best of dance including tradition, artistic excellence and creativity. From beloved classics such as The Nutcracker and Carmina Burana to new creations such as Arcadian Broad’s Wonderland: Mad Tales of the Hatter, we continually strive towards new artistic heights.
Join us on this continued journey of growth next season! The energy and excellence at Orlando Ballet has never been stronger and I look forward to celebrating the future with you.

Orlando Ballet presents the highly requested Carmina Burana, in celebration of Artistic Director, Robert Hill’s 10th anniversary season. A hypnotic feast for the senses, Carl Orff’s evocative 1930’s score will be dramatically brought to life on stage by a chorus of voices (the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park), alongside Robert Hill’s mesmerizing choreography, while the instrumentalists provide the shimmering orchestral tones to complete the enthralling experience. Join us at this lush, masterful and transformative performance, for an experience you will never forget.

Please note, ALL performances sold out in advance in 2017, so book early to avoid disappointment.
