Dear Louisville Ballet Patrons,
I am reaching out today let you know that, in light of the recent, alarming rise in COVID-19 infection rates throughout our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person performances of this season’s CHORSHOW, originally scheduled for January 12-16, 2022 inside our Main Street studios.
Please know that this decision was made because the health and safety of our patrons, artists, and staff is our highest priority. But that doesn’t mean we’re cancelling the CHORSHOW experience.
I’m pleased to announce that we will be moving this intimate, innovative production to the digital stage.
Here are the digital CHORSHOW details to date:
KERTIS Creative – the team behind our 2020/2021 digital Season of Illumination – will partner with us to film this production in our studios. We know that the choreographers and artists involved in this production will create something powerful and memorable; we look forward to being able to share it with you soon, no matter where you are.
Our CHORSHOW digital ticket on-sale date and purchasing details are coming soon. At this time we plan to release CHORSHOW in mid-February, and we will let you know the specific viewing dates as soon as they are final.
I couldn’t end this communication without mentioning how proud I am of the artists and staff members of Louisville Ballet and the collective work everyone has done in mitigating the spread of this virus to date. We are especially grateful that we were able to do every performance of our beloved community favorite, The Brown-Forman Nutcracker, this season. So many of our peers were less fortunate. Our commitment to health and safety protocols has been key to this success, and we’re especially grateful that this Company has been willing to do the hard work required to make in-person performances possible.
At this time, we have no plans to cancel any additional upcoming spring in-person performances. We believe that making the decision to move CHORSHOW to a digital platform now is key to more thrilling live performances in the very near future.
As always, I look forward to connecting with you soon, to share the joy of making moving art.
Robert Curran, Louisville Ballet Artistic Director
