Colorado Ballet Cancels Ballet MasterWorks Production
Season finale at the Ellie Caulkins House will not take place
DENVER, CO (March 13, 2020) – Colorado Ballet has been closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19, and everyone’s health and safety is our highest priority. In light of the recent mandate from the City of Denver banning public gatherings of more than 250 people from now until April 12, 2020, Colorado Ballet has canceled its season finale production of Ballet MasterWorks, April 3 – 12, 2020.
“We are deeply saddened to see the season come to a close in this manner for our dancers and the organization,” stated Artistic Director Gil Boggs, “but we understand the extreme importance of ensuring the public’s health and safety and will support all efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We would like to thank our patrons for their ongoing support of Colorado Ballet, and appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We look forward to seeing all of Colorado Ballet’s patrons back at the theatre in the future.”
Patrons who have tickets to this performance have three options to enable them to continue enjoying Colorado Ballet performances.
