The show must go on, and there’s no better way to experience Oklahoma City Ballet than by becoming a season subscriber. What does that mean to be a season subscriber? It means selecting either a 3-show or 4-show package so you get to see it all. It also means saving time, saving money, having exclusive exchange privileges, and so much more.
Oklahoma City Ballet will KEEP ON DANCING. This season, we will revisit past fairytale ballets reimagined into one-act story lines, in order to avoid intermissions. This may be a great time for our young patrons and ballet newcomers to attend a performance!
Unfortunately, our fall productions of (e)motion(s), A Triple Bill and Cinderella will be cancelled and we will open our season with The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet, featuring excerpts of your favorite characters from the Kingdom of Sweets. This season is full of magic and wonderful stories aimed at letting our audience escape from reality into the beauty of ballet!
The 2020/21 Season Reimagined will include:
There will still be fabulous music, sets, costumes, and beautifully choreographed dancers. The Ballet is here to provide you with the safest and best experience in order to attend our performances in what is currently our new normal.
Some of the productions that were scheduled for this year could not fit into one act. They will be shifted to the 2021/22 Season, our 50th Anniversary Season.

Q: I already bought my season tickets. Can I get a refund?
A: We encourage our season ticket patrons who are unable to attend performances to consider donating their tickets back to Oklahoma City Ballet so we can resell them. We will send you a donation letter for your taxes if you donate your seats back to us. If this is not something you're able to do, we'll be happy to refund your tickets. Please remember that you will lose your seats if you are refunded.
Q: I have already purchased a four show package, what happened to the fourth show?
A: Cinderella was set to be our first production of the 2020/21 Season. Due to COVID-19 concerns, we’re shortening our season. You can donate the amount back to Oklahoma City Ballet, you can exchange your tickets for Future Voices in March, or we can refund the value of the Cinderella tickets back to you.
Q: I have already purchased a three show package, but now there are only two shows.
A: If you want to make it a three show package, we will offer tickets to The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet or Future Voices to make up for the loss of the October production. If you think you’re not a fan of The Nutcracker, now is a great time to give it another chance and see the one act version. You can also donate the value of the tickets back to Oklahoma City Ballet or request a refund.
Q: What happened to Cinderella?
A: In the interest of keeping our dancers, staff, and patrons safe, we decided that October was too early to open with such a large production. And because of the popularity and scale of Cinderella, we didn’t want to cut it down to one act, but rather save it for another season when we can do all three acts and do them right.
Q: I am a season subscriber, will I still be able to sit in my usual season ticket seats?
A: We do not know at this point in time. We hope that by December, social distancing mandates will be lifted so you can have your usual seats. If there is a social distancing mandate from either the government or the venue, we will have to rearrange seating but try to keep you in the same section for which you paid. You can stay updated on these guidelines by subscribing to our email updates here.
Q: Will you be requiring social distancing and masks at these performances?
A: At this time, the Civic Center Music Hall does require masks, social distancing, and temperature checks. Whether or not that will still be policy in December is to be determined. Please stay updated on these guidelines by subscribing to our email updates here. We plan to notify all ticket holders of what to expect prior to each production this season.
Q: Why are all of the performances one hour?
A: After research conducted by many performing arts organizations across the country, it is deemed best practices to avoid intermissions, therefore, all performances will be one hour or less without an intermission.
Q: When can I buy more tickets to The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet?
A: Because we are unsure of seating arrangements at this time, single tickets will not be available until October 7 or potentially later. We will make sure you are the first to know of this special benefit for subscribers.
Q: Will I still be able to purchase a souvenir at The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet?
A: Yes. At this time, we plan to have a limited Nutcracker boutique that will offer some of the most popular souvenirs as well as Oklahoma City Ballet merchandise.
Q: How can I see Robert’s A Little Peace that was going to be premiered in April (then September) as part of (e)motion(s), A Triple Bill?
A: You can still see A Little Peace in March at the Susan E. Brackett Dance Center as part of Future Voices. Please note that A Little Peace will be a shorter version of what was originally planned.
Q: What do I get when I purchase a 3-show season subscription package?
A: You will get tickets to The Firebird and The Little Mermaid, plus your choice of either The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet or Future Voices.
Q: What do I get when I purchase a 4-show season subscription package?
A: You will get tickets to The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet, The Firebird, Future Voices, and The Little Mermaid.
Q: When can I buy single tickets to The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet, The Firebird, Future Voices, and/or The Little Mermaid if I don’t want to buy a subscription?
A: Single tickets for all performances will go on sale October 14, however subscribers will get to buy additional single tickets starting October 7.
Q: Will all the shows be at the Civic Center?
A: Productions of The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet, The Firebird, and The Little Mermaid will be performed at the Civic Center Music Hall. We also have a performance of shorter works (including Robert Mills’ A Little Peace) at the Susan E. Brackett Dance Center, 6800 North Classen Blvd, OKC, in March.
Q: I’m not interested in these shows, but would still like to support the Ballet. How can I do this?
A: You can make a donation of your season tickets back to the Ballet. Since your kind gift will help support us during this challenging time, we’ll hold your seat(s) for next season. Fully tax-deductible donations can be made anytime. For more information, please visit our support page.
Q: Will we be able to see Cinderella next season?
A: Cinderella will not be a part of the 2021/22 season, because we will reprise the very popular production of Septime Webre’s ALICE (in wonderland).
