Mobile Ballet Announces 2019-2020 Season

Submitted: Mobile Ballet

MOBILE, Ala. - Mobile Ballet returns this fall in a stage journey from love and passion to tragedy and exhilaration in the sophomore season under Artistic Director Katia Garza. The season begins with an emotional 25-year career touchpoint for Garza, in what will be her final principal role in a full-length classical ballet: Giselle. 

2019-2020 Season 

October 26th & 27th - Giselle 

Considered the first ballet ever when performed in 1841, this masterwork of the Romantic era still captivates audiences with a story of mad love that turns to madness... and ultimately forgiveness. Giselle is a peasant girl who dies of a broken heart on discovery her lover Albrecht is betrothed to another. Transformed to a "wili” - the ghostly spirits of dead girls jilted on their wedding day - Giselle haunts the forest and inevitably saves her true love’s life. Artistic Director Katia Garza will dance the role of Giselle, joined by Ballet Master Israel Rodriguez and Guest Artists Paul Branco and Raul Peinado. Considered the Hamlet of theatrical ballet, "Giselle” is a powerful production not to be missed. 

December 14th & 15th - The Nutcracker 

Christmastime once again brings the lavish holiday tradition of "The Nutcracker” - pairing Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece with fresh choreography from Artistic Director Katia Garza. Sugar Plum Fairy, Clara and the Nutcracker Prince await! All three performances December 14th & 15th are Mobile Bay favorites and premiere seating sells out quickly. 

March 21st & 22nd - Beauty and the Beast 

Be our guest! "Beauty and the Beast” - a new Mobile Ballet production by Artistic Director Katia Garza - promises thrilling transformations, wild waltzes, and magical characters in a love story at first terrifying but ultimately joyously beautiful. An enchanting tale as old as time... this classic features the debut of new choreography by Garza along with bold new sets and costumes. 

All performances: Mobile Civic Center Theater/ admission $20-$60 

Tickets may be purchased through the Ballet office at (251) 342-2241 or online: www.mobileballet.org
