About the Event

Get ready for an electrifying finale as we celebrate State Street Ballet’s 30th anniversary with The Brilliance Program. Experience contemporary innovation and classical elegance with George Balanchine’s “Who Cares?” and “Birthday Variations” by Joffrey Ballet’s Gerald Arpino. Plus, be the first to witness a world premiere by the visionary Kassandra Taylor Newberry, a choreographer known for pushing artistic boundaries through audience favorites such as Fold and (con)version. Join us for an unforgettable evening of passion and brilliance that will leave you longing for more.

“Beautiful and thought-provoking dance. Truly a not-to-be-missed company!” – National Hispanic Cultural Center, Albuquerque, NM

Choreography by George Balanchine, Gerald Arpino, and Kassandra Taylor Newberry • Music by George Gershwin and Giuseppe Verde

*Join us after the performance on May 9 for a question-and-answer session with the artists.
