Spring Celebration Ballet

Rejoice with Spring Celebration Ballet

An eclectic collection of sure-to-inspire performances.

Walpurgisnacht • George Balanchine

In the thrilling third act of Gounod’s opera Faust, the souls of the dead are freed to wander. Balanchine captures the spirit in this “sweepingly lyrical ballet for a grand phalanx of women.” - Miami Herald

World Premiere • Nicole Haskins

“I hold true that art has the power to connect us all to the deepest parts of the human existence, and therefore strive to be a choreographer who helps dancers and audiences escape the world around them while tapping into what it really means to be alive.” - Nicole Haskins

Spring • Jerome Robbins

The great Jerome Robbins “redefined American ballet and musicals.” - The Village Voice

In Spring, part of the master’s The Four Seasons, four ebullient male zephyrs share the joys of the season in a dance set to rollicking music by Verdi.

The Concert • Jerome Robbins

The New York Times calls Robbinsʼ Concert “surely the most comedic ballet in existence.” Enjoy the fun in this laugh-out-loud spoof of a piano recital, where everything that could go wrong does go wrong!
