THE MERRY WIDOW

September 13-14, 2019 | Whitney Hall, The Kentucky Center

The Merry Widow is recognized as one of the 20th century most beloved works. This opulent ballet adaptation of Franz Lehár’s operetta, set amid the glitz and glamour of early 20th-century Paris, tells an intoxicating love story between the beautiful widow Hanna and the dashing Count Danilo — a lavish tale of comedic intrigue filled with elegant ladies, eligible bachelors, and famed can-can dancers. 

Choreography by Ronald Hynd / Music by Franz Lehár, arranged by John Lanchbery and performed by The Louisville Orchestra

THE BROWN-FORMAN NUTCRACKER

December 14-22, 2019 | Whitney Hall, The Kentucky Center

By day, he’s an ordinary nutcracker. By night, he’s an exemplary soldier, fighting against the Rat King and his mice. Then, after midnight, he’s a charming prince who escorts the young Marie to the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets. He’s also a terrific dancer. Suffice it to say, he’s a complicated, multi-dimensional character who your whole family will fall in love with. Don’t miss the Louisville classic, The Brown-Forman Nutcracker.

Choreography by Val Caniparoli / Music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, performed by The Louisville Orchestra
