Karen Russo Burke, Artistic Director
In the 2015–2016 Ascend season, the Dayton Ballet brings the wildly popular Cinderella back to the stage this October. In April, the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet plays out on the main stage at the Schuster, set to the classical music of Sergei Prokofiev. The Dayton Philharmonic joins Dayton Ballet for this performance to bring the beautiful score to vivid life. In February, Dayton Ballet presents two exciting world-premiere ballets, one choreographed by Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke and one choreographed by the engaging Melissa Barak, whose résumé boasts an incredible dance background, including nine years with New York City Ballet. Of course, the Ascend season would not be complete without the Dayton Ballet's presentation of the beloved holiday classic and tradition The Nutcracker in December.
Pizza Preludes The Thursday evening performances (October 22, 2015 and February 11, 2016) will include a Pizza Prelude: complimentary pizza appetizers at 7:00 pm provided by our good friends at Uno's. These two performances start at 7:30 rather than the typical evening time of 8:00, giving our patrons plenty of time to get home early.
Tickets (888) 228-3630
In addition to the regular Dayton Ballet series above, the company also performs in three dramatic Dayton Performing Arts Alliance 2015–2016 Signature Events (see below). These may be purchased in addition to a regular series, or subscribers may exchange into these events. More information here.
