For the 2015-2016 Kaplan New Works Series, Hougland has churned out yet another world premiere for Cincinnati audiences, titled Fellow Traveler. The return of Patric Palkens as Principal Dancer this season made for a perfect pairing with Hougland, leading to the creation of Adam’s sixth world premiere with Cincinnati Ballet.
You’ve seen ballet from the orchestra seats. We’ve even showed you what it’s like on stage. But this time we’ve gone further… about 100 feet further in fact. We hid a camera on the set floating high above the dancers to capture Mozart’s Requiem from an impossible angle during technical rehearsals. Watch as the Cincinnati Ballet dancers practice […]
The week before opening night of ALICE (in wonderland) the Cincinnati Ballet company moved into the Aronoff Center for dress rehearsals and technical rehearsals. See Alice from angles you’ve never seen before as we pass a GoPro camera off to our dancers and join them for a first person perspective on stage!
We collected footage from Drosselmeyer’s point of view and backstage to show you what it’s like to go flying across the stage.
After originally joining forces for Kaplan New Works, Cincinnati Ballet and Elementz hip hop dance group collaborated on hip hop choreography, making a unique addition to this season’s Frisch’s Presents The Nutcracker.
Frisch’s has been sponsoring the Cincinnati Ballet production of Frisch’s Presents The Nutcracker since it’s beginning in 1974! Each year Big Boy is ceremoniously escorted by the Nutcracker to his rightful place in the Aronoff Center lobby to kick off Cincinnati’s Nutcracker season.
40 years later Nutcracker has evolved, becoming even more spectacular than the original. Families still gather every winter to see the magic and wonder of Cincinnati Ballet’s The Nutcracker, now in its sixth iteration.
