BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre (BRBT) has announced performances for their 2016-2017 season.

The season will begin with a one-night-only performance by the Lehrer Dance company from Buffalo, NY. Director John Lehrer will return to Baton Rouge with his dance troupe to showcase their unique modern, contemporary, and jazz choreography. The show will take place at the River Center Theater on October 30. Lehrer has previously worked with the BRBT as faculty during the Regional Dance America/Southwest festival hosted by the Theater.

Following the Lehrer Dance showcase, the season will continue with “The Nutcracker – A Tale from the Bayou.”  Now in its twenty-fourth year, the holiday classic will be performed on December 17 and 18. 

BRBT will conclude their season with an original production of Rapunzel, on April 7, 2017. The classic fairytale was re-conceived and choreographed by Rebecca Acosta and Jonna Cox.

“We’re excited to start our season with a director who thrilled dancers at this year’s Festival and end it with an original in-house storybook ballet production,” says BRBT artistic director, Molly Buchmann. “It’s going to be a wonderful season with something for everyone.”

Specially discounted season tickets are already available for purchase by the public, and tickets for individual performances will go on sale August 1.
