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.
Modern Masters is an eclectic mix of contemporary movement and new ideas from talented choreographers who are redefining the language of ballet.
