Orlando Ballet (Facebook Website) has announced its lineup for the 2020-21 season, which juxtaposes vampires and dancing nut-cracking toys with boys who don’t want to grow up and Parisian can-can dancers.

This will be the first season that Orlando Ballet can host performances in their own building, the $12.5 million Harriett’s Orlando Ballet Centre.

Subscriptions for the 2020-21 season will be available for purchase beginning February 7, 2020.
