About the Performance

Don Quixote

We invite you to a reimagined Don Quixote set in La Mancha, Spain, circa 1550, with ruffled skirts, snapping fans and waving toreador capes. In Act 1, townspeople gather to shop and visit; three sisters, Quiteria Ana, Quiteria Sofia, and Quiteria Lucia, enjoy meeting up with friends. A wealthy shopkeeper, Gamache, gets chased by baby chicks and a rooster, and toreadors let their capes fly alongside young bulls and calves. One of the toreadors, Basilio, catches the eye of Quiteria Lucia, and a romance blossoms. As the townspeople drift off for siesta, Act 2 allows for dreaming of beautiful fairies. The final act celebrates the marriage of Basilio and Quiteria Lucia.

 

Symphonic Nonsense

New Haven Ballet presents former New York City Ballet Soloist, Tom Gold’s whimsical Symphonic Nonsense, featuring music by Woodbury, Connecticut native, Leroy Anderson.

Small but mighty! 

New Haven Ballet is a small community based nonprofit ballet school. We do a lot with very little. That is part of what makes us special.

Ticket sales and tuition do not cover our expenses. Your generosity motivates us to work hard to produce performances and programs, bring the best teachers, offer the best classes and upgrade our facilities. As you will see tonight, when we once again showcase The Nutcracker, Act 1 (Sunday Cast), we also curate amazing films of our performances. 

We are constantly striving to improve.

Please help us continue this work so that we may continue to provide community programs, like Shared Ability and DanceAIR, offer the highest caliber training, and superb performances.

OUR MISSION

To provide the greater New Haven Community with exceptional classical ballet training, performances, and outreach programs, that nurture appreciation of ballet and foster the joy of dance.

On October 31, 2020, NHB’s Board of Directors adopted the following Diversity and Inclusion Statement:

New Haven Ballet celebrates those who aspire to excellence in classical ballet. A culture of creativity is the core of our work and diversity promotes innovation. The arts can provide powerful life-changing experiences that prepare students and impact audiences to lead more successful, meaningful and culturally rich lives. The arts can also prove to be an important platform for social change. At New Haven Ballet we are passionate about creating an inclusive dance environment and performances that promote and value diversity and inclusion. We will continue to strive to increase diversity in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective, which will improve and strengthen our work.
