A Letter from the Artistic Director

Balance is a critical element in dance. Adjusting to current circumstances while looking forward to and planning for the future requires balance as well. I will be forever proud of how our organization and our community came together as one to keep us dancing. At Orlando Ballet, we are finding our way through these difficult days with a path for the future. I’m delighted to report that Orlando Ballet’s 2020/21 season will be remarkable because it will include a balance of what we weren’t able to perform last season with several new productions, all of which will remind us of the joy that comes from dance and the performing arts.

I’m pleased to announce that our spectacular new season will begin with my world premiere of The Sleeping Beauty to be followed by the tradition of The Nutcracker at the Dr. Phillips Center’s Walt Disney Theater.

 

In March, we will premiere the highly anticipated Moulin Rouge® The Ballet followed by Peter Pan in the beautiful new Steinmetz Hall. I am especially pleased to be performing Jessica Lang’s The Calling and see the company in Lyric Pieces in The Premiere Collection (formerly known as Made in the USA: A Collection of American Works). The Premiere Collection will also showcase my brand new world premiere ballet, Visions, and include Val Caniparoli’s Lambarena. The dance company is ecstatic to be able to perform this repertoire for Central Florida in Harriett’s Orlando Ballet Centre.

 

We have all been through so much together, so please know that our upcoming season is intended to continue to bring us all together through artistry, beautiful dance and our own Orlando Ballet.
