The Emergence series will feature Igor Stravinsky and choreography by George Balanchine presenting the influential Agon plus new works by critically acclaimed choreographers Caili Quan, Stephanie Martinez and Adam Hougland, who is past Resident Choreographer at Louisville Ballet.

Visions will showcase Penny Saunders’ innovative Ghost Light, a newly commissioned work by Jermaine Spivey and Extremely Close, a mesmerizing emotionally beautiful work by Alejandro Cerrudo. Stagecraft and production will include fascinating full-motion fast-moving vertical walls and dramatically lit white feathers for Extremely Close.

Tchaikovsky’s iconic Swan Lake will be everything you expect from this incomparable performance plus more mystery, athleticism and majesty. SacBallet’s Swan Lake will be staged by Artistic Director Anthony Krutzkamp who has performed the work across the US and around the world!

SacBallet continues its treasured, annual holiday celebration set to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. This year SacBallet presents its newest staged production that features choreography by Sacramento hometown dancers Nicole Haskins, Colby Damon and Julia Feldman.

Beer & Ballet kicks off SacBallet’s Season 68, with the support of Sacramento’s popular Bike Dog Brewery. This season-opening show features new works from SacBallet’s own dancer-choreographers. With every ticket purchase, attendees receive one draft beer or glass of wine. Hosted under the stars in the CLARA courtyard (on the Jim Hargrove Stage), with food trucks and other festivities around, it’s a great way to celebrate the end of summer.

We move fearlessly forward with a contemporary, neoclassical and bracing program. This is an unrivaled opportunity to experience all that SacBallet can do. We will premiere the much anticipated work, Soar. Jennifer Archibald, Resident Choreographer for Cincinnati Ballet, was a Choreographic Fellow for Alvin Ailey’s New Directions Choreography Lab. Her work, Soar, pushes contemporary movement to its most beautiful limits. Sacramento Ballet’s own national choreographer in the making, Julia Feldman creates Hearts her first mainstage piece following Nutcracker 2021 for the company. And we gift a long-awaited return of George Balanchine’s classical masterwork, Allegro Brillante.
