Description: PRESS RELEASE: Ballet Theatre of Maryland’s 2016-2017 Season Unleashed Immediate Release: Press Release Contact: Dianna Cuatto 410-224-5644 (w); 443-891-3408 © Email: dckessler@comcast.net Ballet Theatre of Maryland, Maryland’s premier professional ballet company, is excited to reveal an exquisite array of performances for its upcoming 2016-2017 Season. I am incredibly excited to unveil Ballet Theatre of Maryland’s (BTM’s) 2016-2017 Season and invite you to share in an amazing journey as we step together through the pages of magic, intrigue, power, passion, drama, humor and adventure at our home theater at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis. Our journey begins on October 21, 21, and 23, 2016, with America’s first and most beloved original mysterious, ghost story: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This masterful retelling of Washington Irving’s masterpiece will meet your every expectation. Everyone loves a ghostly, spooky tale about things that go bump in the night—especially when the tale is full of good humor and beloved characters. The lanky, comedic school teacher, Ichabod Crane, pits himself against the athletic “jock”, Brom Bones as they vie for the attention of the lovely, mysterious, wealthy Katrina Van Tassel. And of course the spooky specter at the bottom of all the mysterious happenings is the Headless Horseman himself who will make a guest appearance onstage at Maryland Hall. Next, I invite you to ride the Holiday Express to the most famous destination of all time—The Nutcracker, December 10, 11, 17, and 18. 2016. Battle the Rat Queen and her minions and help Clara rescue her beloved Nutcracker as you share in her magical adventures and the spirit of tradition with your loved ones. Travel once more through the realm of the Snow Queen to the Kingdom of Sweets with Clara and her Prince to the place where dreams come true and Holiday spirit abounds. Look for some new sets pieces in our annual production at Maryland Hall. On February 19, 20, and 21, 2017, our journey takes us to under the sea for the world premiere of BTM’s The Little Mermaid at Maryland Hall, based upon the 1837 fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson. A mischievous young mermaid takes us on the adventure of a lifetime when she willingly gives up her freedom of life in the sea to become human, gain an immortal soul, and win the heart of a handsome young Prince. But it will take all of her courage, selflessness, and determination to make her dreams come true by defeating a sneaky sea witch, her devious sea wraith companion, while saving two kingdoms in the process. Together, we will dive into a world of drama, magic, intrigue, music and adventure as we explore life under the sea and on land through the powerful language of dance. Of course, our journey wouldn’t be complete at Maryland Hall without our April 24, 25, and 26, 2017 performances of Innovations 2016-2017 where BTM will captivate you with innovative pieces that will transport you from the Classical to the Dramatic to the Contemporary, exploring emotions and themes relevant to all of us.
