Ballet BC Announces
2019/20 Season

Ballet BC is proud to announce the 2019/20 season marking the 34th Anniversary year as the company continues to celebrate life as movement. The new season, filled with powerful and unforgettable moments, features a North American premiere, Ballet BC premiere and the return of five renowned choreographers!
Reveling in the beauty of our humanity, the season opens with two works in Program 1 by acclaimed choreographers: the premiere of BUSK by Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton and B.R.I.S.A by Johan Inger. In Program 2 we revisit the pleasure, pain and politics of young love with the timeless Romeo + Juliet by Medhi Walerski. Program 3 closes the season with a hypnotic experience of the sensory worlds of Hora by Ohad Naharin and Bill by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar.
For the holidays in December, Ballet BC presents Alberta Ballet’s retelling of holiday classic The Nutcracker. With choreography by Edmund Stripe, sets and costumes designed by Emmy Award-winning designer Zack Brown, and Tchaikovsky’s glorious musical score played live by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, this extravagant production is a dazzling complement to the holiday season.

“In 2019/20, we are excited to continue a dialogue about dance and its power to transform and connect us in ways that echo across time, place and culture. Today, more than ever, we need channels of expression that examine society and our place in it. Dance can move people to feel and interpret life in new and meaningful ways. This season we are eager to delve deeper into a dance with each of you.”

— Emily Molnar, Artistic Director
