Ballet Toybox

February 18, 2012, 1:00 pm | Aronoff Center for the Arts

For one performance only, Cincinnati Ballet offers a diverse program of classical and contemporary ballet selections designed to delight families and introduce children to ballet. At 50 minutes and $25 per ticket, Ballet Toybox is an easy and affordable way to experience Cincinnati Ballet with the whole family.

"This new program of Ballet Toybox offers a fun and lively mix of entertaining works and will include the world premiere of the full length narrative telling of Peter and the Wolf as well as sneak peak excerpts of Princess and the Pea and The Steadfast Tin Soldier which are included in the family series that ends our season. Additionally, audience members will get to see short portions of Swan Lake and our recently premiered Frisch’s Presents The New Nutcracker. This event promises to be a delight to the senses with something for all those who are young at heart! Swans, soldiers, a wolf oh my!"
-Devon Carney, Associate Artistic Director and choreographer for The Steadfast Tin Soldier.
