The six-program Cincinnati Ballet 2024-2025 season features annual favorites such as Kaplan New Works (this year, featuring creations by Christian Denice, Caroline Dahm, and Gustavo Ramirez) and The Nutcracker (Victoria Morgan) as well as three other story ballets and an evening of contemporary pieces.

Devon Carney’s Giselle and Septime Webre’s The Wizard of Oz are followed by the Cincinnati Ballet Second Company (CB2) production of Snow White.

For the “Director’s Vision: No Boundaries” triple-bill which closes the season, works by Alexander Ekman, David Morse, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa will be showcased.

  • Ekman’s Cacti is a playful and witty parody of contemporary dance. The work is an affectionate, pointed, and often hilarious deconstruction of the affectations of dance.
  • Morse’s Our Story looks at the unique singularity of history’s darkest chapter – the Holocaust – and asks profound questions about what is required of each of us to appreciate our shared humanity.
  • Ochoa’s Delmira was inspired by the life of 20th-century Latin American poet Delmira Agustini, one of the first female poets of the modern era. Ochoa tells her story using the symbolism that Agustini employed in her writing.
