Despite an uncertain COVID-19 future, Ballet San Antonio is still going ahead with its 2020-21 season. Beginning in October, the lineup features three classic, family-friendly ballets to be staged at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
"I am delighted to share these beautiful story ballets with our audience and thrilled to welcome the wonderful choreographers to work with our dancers this season in our new rehearsal home," says Ballet San Antonio artistic advisor Sofiane Sylve.
Don Quixote, choreographed by Patrick Armand, opens the season October 16-18. Spanish flair, castanets, and tambourines are at the heart of Miguel de Cervantes' story, which will transport you to the continent's most passionate country. Follow Don Quixote and many other hilarious characters through the most entertaining and moving adventures. He will fight the windmills and fall in love with the beautiful Dulcinea in this classic known for its color and humor.
Co-choreographed by Easton and Haley Smith, The Nutcracker returns with colorful costumes, humor, a dazzling winter wonderland, and much more. A theatrical experience set to Tchaikovsky's score, with live music by the San Antonio Symphony, this magical holiday experience creates lasting memories of the holiday season with family and friends. It runs December 4-6 and 11-13.
The season ends February 26-28, 2021, with a race against the midnight toll and the grand return of Edwaard Liang's Cinderella. A fairytale full of hope, hardship, and happily ever after, this lush production — set to Prokofiev's score — brings your favorite characters to life with elegance and charm.
