Tulsa Ballet announces 2021-2022 season with classical ballet and contemporary dance performances

TULSA, Okla. – The artistic director of Tulsa Ballet, Marcello Angelini, announced the details of the 2021-2022 season for the dance company on Friday April 23, during a virtual event.

Angelini hopes the coming season will bring the Tulsa Ballet back to a sense of normalcy.

“The past 14 months have been difficult for all of us in the community and globally, both personally and professionally,” said Angelini. “Our country is now approaching the corner in the quest to defeat this pandemic, hope is palpable and the prospect of returning to a regular ballet season tangible and seemingly within reach.”

After a non-traditional season filled with uncertainties about the future of the arts, Angelini once again found the balance between 19th century classics and contemporary works to reflect modernity.

“It is with this hope that we announce our 65th season, rich in world premieres, a brand new Nutcracker, a time for reflection with a world premiere piece dedicated to the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, the incarnation from the classic tradition exemplified by Swan Lake, from American premieres like Vendetta and the return of Andy Blankenbuehler’s Remember our Song, ”Angelini continues.

The new season will launch with Creations with Studio K with three world premieres from September 9 to 19.

The dance company will also present a multimedia experience of the Tulsa Race Massacre to mark its centenary for an unforgettable theatrical experience that runs from October 28 to 31. She will also be making the return of this Tulsa ballet at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.

The new season also features an all-new production of The Nutcracker for this year’s holiday season, the long-awaited premiere of Vendetta, a mafia story that will debut in 2022 and performances of the most performed ballet of all time, Swan Lake, next spring.

Season tickets for the upcoming 2021-2022 season can be purchased at Tulsa Ballet’s website. Single tickets will be available later August 1.
