The Cincinnati Ballet has announced it will reschedule a couple of upcoming performances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the CDC's recommendation the U.S. suspend public gatherings of 50 or more for eight weeks.

The ballet is rescheduling Director's Cut, "a triple bill of dynamic works from choreographers with distinct points of view," for July 23-25 at the Aronoff Center. It was originally slated to take place April 30-May 2.

Sharing those dates at the Aronoff is Bold Moves, originally scheduled for April 23-25. 

The new performance will be called Bold Moves Plus. According to the ballet, this joint show will include "Alejandro Cerrudo’s Extremely Close, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Bloom, Val Caniparoli’s Ibsen’s House and Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16."

"This extended program will notably capture most of the beloved pieces from both programs and will serve as Cervilio Miguel Amador’s retirement performances before he joins the team at Cincinnati Ballet as our Acting Ballet Master for the 2020-2021 Season," a release reads. 

The Cincinnati Ballet's family series performance of Snow White scheduled to take place March 28-April 5 has also been postponed. They will be producing Snow White Feb. 26-28, 2021 instead of The Little Mermaid.
