Huntsville Ballet opens its 60th season with  HBC Unplugged featuring the family favorite, Peter & the Wolf  and the much-anticipated return to the stage of Artistic Director, Phillip Otto’s original ballet, Amore. In 2019, Otto commissioned local composer Jackson Love to create the score for the now acclaimed ballet whose individual movements; diamonds, blue topaz, gold, and pearls symbolize love. This ballet was inspired by the exquisite work of Huntsville’s own renowned jewelry artist, Dr. Kathy Chan. Dr. Chan created the award-winning Amore necklace in 1986 using 197 carats of blue topaz pierced with an arrow of diamonds.

Each performance will conclude with what has become an audience favorite, the opportunity to meet and ask questions of the dancers and directors.

Mark C. Smith Concert Hall

The Huntsville Ballet Company takes the stage of the Mark C. Smith Concert Hall in April with the spellbinding second act of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. One of the most iconic ballets of all times, Swan Lake entwines love, magic, and tragedy to tell the story of Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette, the swan maiden who has fallen under the enchantment of the evil Baron Von Rothbart. Only a vow of true love can break the spell.
