Introducing our new season

The dramatic and passionate Richmond Ballet 2019-20 season opens with ‘Contemporary Classics,’ featuring John Butler’s Carmina Burana, set to the iconic Carl Orff score, along with the Richmond Ballet premiere of George Balanchine’s Theme and Variations. Clara takes audience members along with her on her magical journey in our annual holiday treat, The Nutcracker, and the quintessential ballet classic, Swan Lake, returns in February for four performances only. The Studio Series rounds out our season with engaging performances that will capture the attention of seasoned dance audiences and newcomers alike. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!
