Now in its 17th year, Ballet Under the Stars brings the beauty of dance to everyone – free of charge. Bring family and friends, pack a picnic and enjoy a program that ranges from classical to contemporary dance.
Mindful of Connecticut's slow emergence from pandemic restrictions and taking precautions to keep our audiences safe and comfortable gathering once again, we are excited to present our first live performances since October 2020. The program features commissioned works by Jolet Creary, Eve Chan, Nicole Tongue, Marden Ramos and company Artistic Director Brett Raphael. Created in a ballet bubble for an online audience in the winter/spring of this year, the works will receive their public premiere this summer!
Running time = 90 minutes with one intermission.
