State Street Ballet’s twenty-third season brings romance, spectacle, and powerfully evocative dance to the stages of Santa Barbara. Including Mozart's exquisite Requiem with the Santa Barbara Symphony, and the company’s spellbinding interpretation of Romeo and Juliet, classical and contemporary dance meld seamlessly together on stage through world-class dancers and choreographers.
State Street Ballet's production of The Nutcracker is a family-favorite. With sets, costumes, and staging that capture the Slavic history of the ballet, it's a richly beautiful performance that delights audiences of all ages!
