Love is in the Air

Once again, Indianapolis Ballet is sharing the love with ballet lovers – and lovers of romance in general – for Valentine’s weekend. This production of mixed repertoire will celebrate love in its various forms through three works:  Rubies, Ania’s Song, and Tango Forever.





Sassy, playful, and flirtatious, Rubies is the perfect ballet to make your Valentine’s Day sparkle.


This sophisticated exploration into relationships was inspired by the artistry of jewelry designer Claude Arpels. Set to music by Stravinsky, Rubies is often considered the jazziest, most accessible ballet of George Balanchine’s “Jewels.” It’s also visual dynamite — the dancers don exquisitely handsewn ruby-red costumes bejeweled with hundreds of gems.


Balanchine is at the heart of our organization, and Indianapolis Ballet is honored to open our February residency with this iconic masterpiece. Rubies is presented by arrangement with The George Balanchine Trust and staged by Victoria Simon, one of the most sought-after and respected re-creators of Balanchine’s works.


Ania’s Song

Choreographed by Artistic Director Victoria Lyras, this neo-classical ballet portrays the relationship between two couples – one youthful, one mature – in their journey through life. A string quartet will accompany the dancers live on stage.


The music for Ania’s Song was commissioned by Thomas Beczkiewicz for his dear wife Ania on her 60th birthday. Award-winning composer James Aikman structured the piece around the initials of her name (A, D, B) and completed the pavane in 2006. The world lost Ania in 2018, but her memory resonates throughout this deeply personal work.


Ania’s Song is also the result of truly local collaboration between Thomas Beczkiewicz (co-founder of the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis), Indianapolis composer James Aikman, and Indianapolis Ballet.




Tango Forever

To close out our celebration of love, Indianapolis Ballet will transform The Toby stage into a Milonga – a tango dance party!


Tango Forever will feature a series of dynamically different tangos in a multitude of combinations. Cool and collected, mysterious and seductive, Tango requires dancers to lead not with steps, but with each breath of the music.
