City Ballet's season closer not only brings the beautiful Act II of Swan Lake to the stage for Mother's Day weekend, but also presents the world premiere of resident choreographer Elizabeth Rowe Wistrich's work set to Mozart's "Requiem," featuring the acclaimed dance company, a 100-voice chorus, vocal soloists and the live City Ballet Orchestra. This spectacular new piece forgoes a literal staging of the text, for a more powerful movement-based interpretation of the emotions in each of its 12 sections. Learn More

We thought this was a wonderful event; reviving childhood memories of attending the Nutcracker with mom. Some of the dancers near the end were quite professional and developed. What struck me the most were the beautiful costumes and set designs, and we loved the performance of some of the little children in the ensemble.
Quotes & Highlights
“City Ballet has become San Diego’s most professional troupe.” —San Diego Union-Tribune
Heralded as “a top-tier dance company” and “an oasis of classical dance in a city otherwise too often a desert,” City Ballet is San Diego’s world-class professional ballet company, now celebrating its nineteenth season, and under the direction of former Boston Ballet and Stuttgart Ballet dancers Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich. City Ballet is a non-profit organization committed to furthering the ballet art form. The company produces classic and contemporary ballet programs that critics rave as “polished, eye-catching and delightful,” and “highly entertaining and professional.” International dance critic Sheila Orysiek wrote in 2006, “San Diego finally has a classical ballet company that is worthy of the name.” City Ballet’s productions have made the Top Ten Dance Events of the Year named by the San Diego Union-Tribune for the past five years.
