Grab your pointe shoes and get ready to relevé because Ballet San Antonio has officially announced all the details about their 2023-2024 season.
Featuring three world-class productions, including one world premiere show, Ballet San Antonio will convert even the most hardened non-ballet believer with their esteemed company of renowned dancers.
OK, so what's on the roster for the Ballet San Antonio 2023-2024 season? The company kicks things off with a production of Beauty and the Beast from October 13-15, featuring choreography from the one and only Bruce Wells (once a former soloist himself who studied under George Balanchine, Wells has created more than 50 ballets).
Wells relayed his hopes for what audiences would take away from Beauty and the Beast via a press release: "As a family-friendly show, I hope Beauty and the Beast gives young people an introduction into the world of ballet that inspires a lifelong love for ballet and the arts."
Following the October production of Beauty and the Beast, Ballet San Antonio will return to the Tobin Center with their classic production of The Nutcracker from December 1-10. What enhances the holiday fun of Ballet San Antonio's Nutcracker production is the fact that they often enlist local celebrities to play the role of Mother Ginger during shows (we wonder who'll take the stage this year!)
Last but not least, we've got the world premiere production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, featuring choreography from dedicated Ballet San Antonio company member Rafael Ferreras. In spirit with the story's theme of love (and plenty of misunderstandings), the production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will take place from February 23-25 only (so make sure to snag those tickets!)
Given that Ballet San Antonio is a resident company of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, every single show takes place at the downtown entertainment venue. You can purchase tickets in-person at the Tobin Center box office, or by calling 210-223-8624. The other option is ordering tickets online at tobincenter.org.
At the moment, you can purchase a season package for the Ballet San Antonio's upcoming productions. If you want to wait to purchase a single ticket to a single show, individual tickets officially go on sale on August 1.
