Madison Ballet closes its season with a joyous spring celebration of dance and music. Artistic Director W. Earle Smith will premiere Las Cuatro, set to Astor Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires," a dynamic interpretation to Vivaldi's popular suite. The company will also present excerpts from it's charming A Midsummer Night's Dream, with choreography by Peter Anastos. 

Madison Ballet’s repertory programs present ballet in its purest form—athletic, sensual, and intimate. And the 200-seat Drury Stage at the Bartell Theatre is just the setting for showcasing shorter works by both established and up-and-coming choreographers.
