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

The critically acclaimed City Ballet of San Diego opens its season by paying tribute to some of Russia’s greatest ballet composers ~ Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky ~ Igor Stravinsky ~ Dimitri Shostakovich, with a program that features Elizabeth Wistrich’s The Firebird.
The program also includes two works from Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux, choreographed by George Balanchine, and Rococo Variations, a neoclassic ballet by Elizabeth Wistrich which is a company premiere.
Completing the program will be HCIV-OKAT-SOHS by Wistrich, set to a score by Dimitri Shostakovich. This contemporary ballet showcases a large cast of City Ballet’s versatile dancers. Live musical accompaniment will be provided by the City Ballet Orchestra under the leadership of John Nettles.
