Ballet Theatre Of Maryland Announces 2021-2022 Season

Annapolis’ Resident Ballet Company Announces Return To Live, In-Person Performances


For the 2021-2022 season, Ballet Theatre of Maryland will return to live, in-theater performances with joy and thanks. This season features the romantic classic “Giselle” in October. Other mainstage works include holiday favorite “The Nutcracker,” a mixed repertory of works in “Momentum” and the family friendly classic “Coppélia.”

“Performing last season required a lot of flexibility to continue dancing while also protecting our company and community,” said artistic director Nicole Kelsch. “We adapted to our changing situation by providing a range of outdoor, prerecorded and livestreamed programming. This season, we are thrilled to continue offering a stream-from-home option as we return to mainstage productions in traditional theater venues.”

Providing a streaming option to both season subscribers and single-ticket holders allows BTM to maintain arts accessibility no matter an audience member’s comfort level. For in-person performances, dancers and audience members will continue to follow all local and venue safety guidelines.

The season opened September 12 with a variety of classical pas de deux during “An Afternoon of Romance” at Hammond-Harwood House. From October 22-24, the curtain will rise at Maryland Hall for “Giselle,” one of the most popular romantic ballets of all time. “The Nutcracker,” with choreography by former artistic director Dianna Cuatto, will provide magic and wonder to the holiday season December 11-12 and December 18-19 at Maryland Hall.

In 2022, “Momentum” will feature a mix of newly commissioned and existing classical and contemporary works on February 25 and 26. Lastly, the company will perform the sentimentally comedic “Coppélia” on April 22-23. To reserve tickets to all these productions at a discounted price, purchase a season subscription for in-person or streamed viewing. Visit to learn more about BTM’s season and its subscriptions.
