The Sarasota Ballet's 2022 – 2023 Season

We are excited to announce today the Company’s 2022 – 2023 Season. Over the seven programs, The Sarasota Ballet will perform 15 works by some of the most celebrated and prestigious choreographers and composers of the ballet world. Of particular note are the five World Premieres featured in the Season, including a new ballet by Jessica Lang—which will premiere as a part of The Sarasota Ballet’s August residency at the Joyce Theater in New York—and an opening World Premiere triple bill. Another Season highlight comes in the form of the full-length Company Premiere of Johan Kobborg’s production of August Bournonville’s La Sylphide. One of the oldest surviving ballets and one of Bournonville’s most celebrated works, it provides a poignant contrast to the Season’s World Premieres. The Season concludes with a program dedicated the father of American ballet, George Balanchine, paying tribute to the great choreographer in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of his passing.
