The news is out, Los Angeles Ballet is returning to stages across LA County for a new season! We are overjoyed to announce the 2021/2022 Season and so grateful for the support and encouragement that we have experienced from you.

We've been hard at work preparing for the start of the season and invite you to review the full season and have a look around our brand new website.

The season begins with The Nutcracker Tea events in November, then our original production of The Nutcracker in December, a beautiful mixed rep in the spring at The Broad Stage featuring choreographers Christopher Wheeldon, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, and George Balanchine, and then, the most treasured story ballets of all time, The Sleeping Beauty in summer!

Tickets for all performances and the Nutcracker Tea are on sale now.

Have questions for us? DM here or call or email. We can't wait to see you at the ballet!

The Nutcracker is LA’s holiday tradition, essential for celebrating the season. Journey with Clara and her beloved Nutcracker as they battle a most memorable Mouse King, encounter dancing Snowflakes, and travel to the Palace of the Dolls.
