Nashville Ballet Announces Lineup for 2019-2020 Season

Nashville Ballet recently announced the performances that will be part of their 2019-2020 season. The upcoming season includes new works and classics that promise to captivate, educate and spark meaningful conversations.

Romeo and Juliet, A Streetcar Named Desire, Nashville’s Nutcracker and Emergence are among some of the standouts for this season. The full schedule is listed below.

“As in years past, this season illustrates the diversity of our community — we program to address the many facets of the individuals within our audience and Nashville as a whole,” said Nashville Ballet Artistic Director Paul Vasterling. “Art exists in order to help us see ourselves and others more fully, building empathy and understanding between us. That’s the driving force behind everything we do at Nashville Ballet, and this year we are particularly focused on our audiences being able to see and reflect themselves in the works that we perform.”

Tickets for Nashville Ballet’s 2019-2020 season are on sale now and can be purchased here or by calling (615) 297-2966 x710. Tickets to individual performances go on sale July 1.
