- Colorado Ballet will open its 2024/2025 Season with eight performances of The Sleeping Beauty, October 4–13, 2024 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. A fairy tale romance that culminates in the power of true love's kiss, this iconic masterpiece dazzles with breathtaking variations, sumptuous sets and costumes, and Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.
- From November 30–December 29, 2024, Colorado Ballet’s The Nutcracker returns to delight audiences of all ages with this timeless tradition that captures the festive spirit of the season, replete with mischievous dancing mice, sweet Sugar Plums, and a symphony of swirling snowflakes.
- Indulge in the scandalous allure of Giacomo Casanova's legendary escapades in Kenneth Tindall’s new ballet, Casanova, January 31–February 9, 2025. A Rocky Mountain regional premiere, Casanova explores the decadent proclivities of the infamous, fabled romantic through bold choreography, iconic Venetian masquerades, and a passionate narrative set to the music of Kerry Muzzey.
- Follow Colorado Ballet down the rabbit hole, March 7–16, 2025, for Septime Webre’s acclaimed ballet, ALICE (in wonderland). Infused with humor, whimsy, and athleticism, ALICE (in wonderland) promises an extraordinary journey that reimagines Lewis Carroll's classic tale in a way that is as enchanting as it is exhilarating—complete with composer Matthew Pierce’s buoyant score, larger-than-life sets and costumes, and a host of magical characters.
- Ballet MasterWorks, Colorado Ballet’s annual repertory production, returns April 11–20, 2025 with a captivating trio of powerhouse masterpieces that put artistic excellence and innovation on full display—George Balanchine’s Serenade, Jiří Kylián’s Petite Mort, and Twyla Tharp’s In the Upper Room.
