Performance Schedule
7:00 pm – 12th Annual Gala of the Stars – Two act performance by world-renowned ballet stars and “Ballet protégés”

Experience an unforgettable night of dance at the 12th annual “Gala of the Stars.” This unique event boasts an incredible roster of world ballet stars from internationally-acclaimed ballet companies, whose talent will be complemented by select, inspired young protégés. Current and future stars will share the stage in one spectacular performance.

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Orange County’s premiere resident ballet company with an exciting gala performance where world-renowned ballet artists share their love and expertise of the craft with future, inspired young stars. The young protégés have been selected as standout performers by visiting artistic directors of the Southland Ballet Academy International Summer Intensive and the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix. The often sold-out performance is a rare opportunity for Orange County audiences to see dancers from different companies in one evening that celebrates the art and passion of ballet.

As Festival Ballet Theatre honors their 30th anniversary, they continue their mission of: “With reverence for classic masterpieces and a focus on developing future tours de force, Festival Ballet Theater is committed to presenting the best of dance, enriching lives, and developing a new generation of audiences and artists.”

The “Gala” presents an unprecedented opportunity to see current and future stars connecting through the same language of dance.
