2021-22 Season

State Street Ballet is thrilled to present a new season complete with beloved audience favorites and world premiere collaborations. Our return to the stage and the audiences we have missed commences in October with a reimagined performance of the Tony Award-winning KISMET, underwritten and produced by community philanthropist Sara Miller McCune, directed by Broadway's Lonny Price, and in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Symphony. Our treasured NUTCRACKER will be back for the holidays, followed in March by the postponed premiere of SLEEPING BEAUTY and a very special GALA PERFORMANCE in April. We can't wait to see you!

Please donate today!
