Performed live by the Nashville Symphony
APRIL 21-23, 2023

In honor of his final season as Nashville Ballet’s Artistic Director, we are proud to celebrate Paul Vasterling with New in Nashville! Featuring never-before-seen-in-Music-City works by some of the world’s most sought-after choreographers, New in Nashville will showcase the growth of our Nashville Ballet artists under Vasterling’s leadership, and honor his legacy with a performance of one of his most beloved ballets, Appalachian Spring. Set to musical masterworks performed live by the Nashville Symphony, this dazzling and dynamic celebration of dance will also include creative visionary Cathy Marston’s Snowblind, based on Edith Wharton’s Ethan Frome, and brand-new ballets by Matthew Neenan and Tony-nominated choreographer Donald Byrd. Available for one weekend only, you won’t want to miss this moment in Nashville Ballet history!
