The dazzling triple bill features Dancing to Oz, a world premiere ballet from Artistic Director, Victoria Morgan, as well as the Cincinnati premiere of Sechs Tänze from world-renowned choreographer, Jiří Kylián, and the return of choreographer Ma Cong’s Near Light.

About Bold Moves Cincinnati Ballet
DeLeone spent the summer months composing the original score, as this season he celebrates his 50th anniversary as Cincinnati Ballet’s Music Director. The one-act ballet also features original set design and brand-new, spectacular costumes. Bold Moves features the triumphant return of choreographer Ma Cong’s Near Light.
Also, it’s a whimsical, courtly world created by contemporary choreographer Jirí Kylián, complete with powdered wigs and 18th-century costumes. Set to some of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s German dances, Sechs Tänze is surprising romp that both delights and intrigues the audience. The inclusion of Jirí Kylián in Bold Moves is a choreographic coup for Cincinnati Ballet. Kylián first created Sechs Tänze in 1986 for the Nederlands Dans Theater.
