2021-22 Season Events

Saturday, May 28, 2022: A MAGICAL MIDSUMMER
Feuding fairy kingdoms, quarreling couples, and a troupe of bumbling actors become entangled in a magical forest and at the center of it all: a mischievous elf named Puck. Come along as we explore George Balanchine’s beloved ballet inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In this fun-filled, hour-long program you’ll see excerpts from this enchanting ballet and hear from the artists who perform it.

Your Safety

We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to Family Saturdays at the David H. Koch Theater. New York City Ballet remains deeply committed to the health and safety of our visitors, artists, and staff. In compliance with developing guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments, we have put in place preventative measures to try to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Children under the age of 5 who are not able to be vaccinated will be permitted to attend Family Saturdays with proof of a negative PCR test, performed by a medical provider, taken no more than 72 hours before the performance. If a potential audience member remains unvaccinated because of a disability or sincerely held religious belief, that person may contact the New York City Ballet in writing for assistance or to request a reasonable accommodation by sending an email to customercare@nycballet.com

As a further tool to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, NYCB will require proper mask usage for all patrons, regardless of age or vaccination status, at all Family Saturdays presentations.
