Going strong for 40 years, Ballet Theater of Maryland announces 2018-19 season

| September 20, 2018

Ballet Theatre of Maryland’s Artistic Director Dianna Cuatto is pleased to announce programming for the 2018-2019 season at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. This year marks the company’s 40th anniversary, an occasion that will be celebrated with world premieres, the return of a holiday classic, and a spring Grande Opening Celebration for friends, family, and VIP patrons. Cuatto, who is now in her 16th season, looks forward to continuing to produce high-caliber ballet performances that engage the mind and spirit and express Maryland’s unique voice through movement.

“[This season] is a time to reflect through new and returning works of dance art all that the company has achieved in its 40 years of existence and share that with an audience of avid patrons as well as new patrons who will see the world through the eyes of dance for the first time,” says Cuatto.
