About the Performance

Step into a world of captivating movement and creative fusion with the Alabama Ballet’s season opener performance, At Home. Enjoy an evening of selected works as we introduce our new Artistic Director, Christopher Stuart. With complimentary refreshments, affordably priced tickets, and an intimate atmosphere, Alabama Ballet At Home is the perfect introduction to the excitement of live performance.
This mesmerizing showcase intertwines new and past works, bringing together the brilliance of classical compositions re-imagined in unexpected ways. At Home will include Roger VanFleteren’s innovative ‘Messin’ with Mozart,’ a daring exploration that infuses Mozart’s timeless melodies with a modern twist, pushing the boundaries of tradition.
Artistic Director Christopher Stuart’s visionary choreography takes center stage with excerpts from his Johnny Cash ballet, ‘Under the Lights’, set to the iconic songs of Johnny and June Carter Cash. Stuart seamlessly blends the raw emotion of Cash’s music with the eloquence of ballet in this ode to the Man in Black.
Adding to the ensemble’s brilliance, Guest Choreographer Julia Eisen unveils ‘Alabama Pines’: a new contemporary ballet set to music by Alabama native and Grammy award winning country music artist Jason Isbell. Stuart’s selections combine these three works, both re-imagined and new, to create At Home. The result is a powerful narrative that resonates with audiences of all backgrounds, transcending genres, and generations.
At Home isn’t just a ballet performance – it’s an immersive experience that celebrates innovation, artistic synergy, and the universal language of dance in an intimate black-box setting. Join us as we celebrate and kick off our 23/24 Season with this stunning collection of works.
