Special Engagements

See us perform outside of the big stage! Each year Syracuse City Ballet is able to be a part of many Special Engagement performances outside of our regularly scheduled season. Whether collaborating with local arts organizations, or putting on a show of our own, these performances show the range and diversity of SCB. Join us!


Syracuse Shakespeare Festival presents: Romeo & Juliet

Syracuse City Ballet opens this show with the famous balcony-scene pas de deux from Romeo & Juliet. Dazzling lifts and partnering interlace with a true love story unfolding. This is a must-see. Join us at Thornden Park Amphitheatre for these FREE performances. Presented by the Syracuse Shakespeare Festival.
