Each summer, Connecticut Ballet presents its Ballet Under the Stars series to audiences in outdoor venues throughout the state. Now in its 16th year, Ballet Under the Stars began as a passion project for Connecticut Ballet’s founder and Artistic Director, Brett Raphael, who strives to break down traditional perceptions of ballet and bring the beauty of dance to everyone – free of charge. “To do the annual tour around Connecticut, and have anybody be able to come and see the dances, is a personal mission," he says. Audiences are invited to bring their families and friends, pack a picnic and enjoy a program that will range from classical to contemporary.


All summer performances in 2020 were cancelled due to the pandemic.

Two additional performances were added:


October 2nd & 3rd - A DELICATE BALANCE, Burr Mall, 570 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut
