The Sarasota Ballet entered our 25th Anniversary Season with an exciting repertoire.

In May of 2014, Gerald Dowler of the Financial Times London said, “Webb and his (Assistant Director) wife Margaret Barbieri have, in a few years, given this small American company the world’s most extensive active Ashton repertoire.”
