Texas Ballet Theater (TBT) has released its 2019-2020 season, which includes a world premiere and U.S. premiere piece. As a resident company of both Winspear Opera House on the AT&T Performing Arts campus and Bass Performance Hall, the Company has the opportunity to perform in both Dallas and Fort Worth.

“Celebrating my 17th season with Texas Ballet Theater, this is sure to be an exceptional season with a delightful mix of contemporary and never-before-seen pieces, with well-loved classics,” Ben Stevenson, O.B.E., Artistic Director for Texas Ballet Theater, said in a news release. “We enjoy bringing world-class art in an exciting and moving way to our audience.”

The season opens at the Winspear Opera House on the AT&T Performing Arts campus with The Sleeping Beauty Sept. 6-8, accompanied by the Dallas Opera Orchestra. Then Oct.18-20, The Sleeping Beauty comes to Bass Performance Hall, accompanied by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. The piece is choreographed by Stevenson.

The holiday season brings Ben Stevenson’s The Nutcracker at Winspear Opera House Nov. 29- Dec. 1 and Dec. 6-Dec. 8 before transitioning to Bass Performance Hall Dec. 13-15; Dec. 19-22; Dec. 23-29.
