Cincinnati Ballet is celebrating its 50th anniversary this season! The company has transformed over the years from the small Cincinnati Civic Ballet to one of the country’s leading regional ballet companies producing world premieres and mesmerizing performances year after year. And you can be a part of it all at the Ballet's next performance, Boléro and Symphony in C, March 28-29, 2014.
Returning for the third time by popular demand, the Cincinnati Ballet presents Boléro, the most famous of composer Maurice Ravel’s works. It builds musically upon a steady drum line, with solitary, seductive instrumentation taking the spotlight. Boléro shows the progression of young dance students to accomplished corps members to flawless principals.

Audiences will also enjoy a performance of Wunderland by BalletMet Columbus. The neoclassical piece is choreographed by BalletMet’s own newly-appointed artistic director Edwaard Liang and set to the music of acclaimed minimalist composer Philip Glass.
And that's not all! In Symphony in C, Cincinnati Ballet and BalletMet dancers perform together in the classical ballet created by world-renowned choreographer George Balanchine. Set to composer Georges Bizet’s once-lost Symphony in C, this piece is the epitome of the marriage of movement to music on stage, and is filled with Balanchine’s appreciation of lines and structure.
