Due to multiple cases of COVID-19 in the orchestra, the Nashville Symphony will not be able to perform at this weekend’s presentation of Ballet Extravaganza. Despite this disruption, this weekend’s concerts, on Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22, will still take place, with Nashville Ballet performing to a rehearsal recording. While this is not how we envisioned bringing you this concert, we are committed to providing our patrons with an opportunity to experience the artistry of Nashville Ballet.

Ticketholders have been notified and have options for their tickets this weekend. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]


PERFORMERS: Nashville Symphony | Nashville Ballet | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor Paul Vasterling, artistic director

Copland – Billy the Kid: Suite
Stravinsky – The Firebird

Following their sellout collaboration with Nashville Symphony on Carmina Burana, the spectacular dancers of Nashville Ballet return to the Schermerhorn for a must-see evening of music and dance, with choreography by Paul Vasterling. Be transported to a world of saloons, cowboys and Wild West adventure with Copland’s exuberant Billy the Kid. Then immerse yourself in the magical sights and sounds of Stravinsky’s shimmering musical fairy tale The Firebird. It's a concert-going experience unlike any other, full of movement and magic.
