All performances of Cincinnati Ballet’s Kaplan New Works in the Park have been cancelled due to anticipated inclement weather and low temperatures this weekend.
We will open next season with The Kaplan New Works Series with a new twist — outdoors at Seasongood Pavilion in Eden Park. Kaplan New Works in the Park will be a ‘breath of fresh air,’ featuring groundbreaking choreography in a welcoming community space. This ambitious program will include world premieres from DANCEFIX phenom Heather Britt and three company dancers, Melissa Gelfin De-Poli, Daniel Baldwin, and Taylor Carrasco, as well as the return of Resident Choreographer Jennifer Archibald’s Sit. Thanks to strong sponsorship, this program will be free to the community, but guests are encouraged contribute what they wish.
