Madison Ballet, celebrating its 31st year, presents world-class ballet to the greater Madison area annually. Best known for its dazzling production of the holiday classic, The Nutcracker, the company’s season is filled with breathtaking performances featuring the dynamic choreography of Artistic Director, W. Earle Smith, alongside works by other well-known choreographers. Madison Ballet’s repertory offers something for audiences of all ages, from timeless stories like Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the high-flying Peter Pan, to contemporary works such as Expressions and the all-new Dracula, a rock ballet premiering in March 2013.
Discover Dance, Madison Ballet’s education and outreach program, engages the young—and young at heart—with its fun and informative presentations. Whether it’s Offstage & Personal, a peek into the day in the life of a ballet dancer, or Movement in Your World, a series of creative movement workshops for the city’s Head Start students, every program helps to further the organization’s mission to promote appreciation and access to ballet.
Come join us for a season like no other. Brilliant. Beautiful. Ballet.
