Springfield Symphony Orchestra is joining forces with Saint Louis Ballet again for another spring performance for the 2023-2024 concert season. In April of 2023, the two organizations performed Swan Lake for a sold out crowd at Juanita K. Hammons Hall. Gen Horiuchi, Artistic Director of Saint Louis Ballet, and Kyle Wiley Pickett of Springfield Symphony Orchestra have worked hard behind the scenes to keep the momentum of this partnership alive and are excited to bring another block buster professional ballet production to the city. Saint Louis Ballet will bring their dancers to Springfield in May to perform Tchaikovsky’s classic production of The Sleeping Beauty in May of 2024.

“Our collaboration with the Saint Louis Ballet this past season succeeded beyond our wildest imagination.  We heard from so many patrons who wanted more that we decided to do it again!  Gen Horiuchi, the artistic director of the SLB, chose to follow Swan Lake with another amazing story ballet by Tchaikovsky – The Sleeping Beauty.  If there is another score that is as familiar and iconic as Swan Lake, it has to be Sleeping Beauty,” says Kyle Wiley Pickett, Music Director. “We are proud to be artistic partners with this remarkable ballet company, and we’re so happy to be able to bring them to our Springfield audience again!”

The Sleeping Beauty will close out the 89th season, #FOMO, in place of #CowboyLife on May 11, 2024. Tickets for the performance will go on sale August 9, 2023 at Hammons Hall Box office and group sales can be made through the Symphony offices.
