Harbourtown Fine Arts Center and the city of Vermilion is welcoming Cleveland Ballet as their first ever professional ballet company in-residence. In late summer 2022, Cleveland Ballet’s 28-member company will be taking the stage August through September, at the Harbourtown Fine Arts Center, a historic opera house recognized on the national registry that is scheduled to undergo extensive renovations this year.
Cleveland Ballet will feature a unique program that will include classical, neoclassical, and new works. The diverse repertoire will be done in collaboration with distinguished classical musicians and opera singers, offering Vermilion audiences the opportunity to experience three magnificent artforms by world-class artists.
Cleveland Ballet’s new summer residency positions the company together with top-tier summer programs like The Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom Music Center, New York City Ballet in Saratoga, NY, and the Santa Fe Opera Festival.
“We are so thrilled of our partnership with the charming town of Vermilion. It is a unique opportunity for our company to expand our audience reach in Northeast Ohio to not only the locals but to summer tourists who would otherwise be unable to see our traditional performances at Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland,” said Co-Founder, President and CEO Michael Krasnyanksy, PhD.
