Oklahoma City Ballet announces 2019-2020 Season

Oklahoma City Ballet has announced its impressive 2019-2020 season performances. This remarkable selection features five performances including a special work honoring Oklahoma City’s transformation following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building.

“Our 2019-2020 season is centered on stories and powerful emotion,” Artistic Director Robert Mills said.

The season begins in October with Michael Pink’s Dracula, an internationally renowned retelling of Bram Stoker’s 1897 horror classic with the chilling original score by Philip Feeney performed live by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic.

In December, celebrate the holiday season with Oklahoma City’s favorite festive production, The Nutcracker. Tchaikovsky’s familiar score, performed by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, and Artistic Director Robert Mills’ delightful staging, will fill the Civic Center in a warm glow.

Robert Mills’ Romeo & Juliet returns with Prokofiev’s lush, romantic score played by the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. Colorful and opulent, Romeo & Juliet will swell your heart with beautiful scenery, timeless music, and incredible dancing.

Future Voices: A Choreographic Showcase is a creative presentation of dance brought back by Artistic Director Robert Mills. Featuring works choreographed by company members and other local dance professionals, this innovative program will be held in the Inasmuch Foundation Theatre at the Susan E. Brackett Dance Center.

(e)motion(s)- A Triple Bill, will feature a world premiere ballet by Artistic Director Robert Mills celebrating the resiliency of our community that fearlessly transformed itself in the aftermath of the bombing in Oklahoma City 25 years ago. Red Sweet from celebrated Finnish choreographer, Jorma Elo, and a work created exclusively for Oklahoma City Ballet dancers by American choreographer, Penny Saunders round out the triple bill.

“With imaginative stories, superb sets and costumes, live music, and incredible dancing, there is truly something for everyone in our 19-20 season,” Mills said.
