Twin Cities Ballet is thrilled to announce a season of in-person performances, featuring exciting premieres, the return of some of our most popular ballets, and, as always, fantastic dancing and storytelling. You won’t want to miss it!
Dracula: This world premiere is part of a mixed bill performance at Ames Center in Burnsville on October 27-28.
Dracula will have an original libretto based on the classic novel, with an original musical score composed for this production by Minnesota composer Simon Sperl.
A Minnesota Nutcracker: TCB’s beloved holiday classic with a Minnesota twist returns to Ames Center on December 10–12, and will include the launch of its new sensory-relaxed performance series, the first of its kind in Minnesota. These performances are designed to be more accessible for persons with sensory sensitivities and families with young children.
In addition, TCB’s one-hour Mini-Nutcracker at Lakeville Area Arts Center on November 30 is a perfect way to introduce children and families to this holiday delight.
TCB’s Choreographic Voices: TCB artists will explore the creative process and present experimental and new works on January 28-29 at the Dance Cube performance space at Ballet Royale Minnesota in Lakeville.
Pink Floyd’s The Wall: A Rock Ballet: Back by popular demand, TCB will be performing its smash-hit original rock ballet at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul on March 11–13, with live music from popular local band Momentary Lapse of Floyd.
Giselle: The season will conclude with the beautiful ballet classic, Giselle, at Ames Center in Burnsville on May 6–8. This will be the Twin Cities Ballet company premiere of one of the most popular and enduring ballet favorites.
These activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
