Ballet offers New Works in new, virtual format, for free

Cincinnati Ballet is offering “CB at Home” beginning Feb. 25 with a free digital version of The Kaplan New Works Series, an ambitious collection of dance world premieres. The program explores themes that include inequity, isolation, empowerment, and love, themes that reflect this unprecedented moment in time.
