Your entertainment cup runneth over as the Sacramento Ballet pours forth with its annual Beer & Ballet program starting Friday, Sept. 30, and running through Sunday, Oct. 16.

“This program contains creative and diverse music and dance, all in our outdoor venue where the views from every seat are fantastic,” Sacramento Ballet says in promoting the event. “Plus, enjoy beer from Bike Dog Brewery and food trucks. (Enjoy your first drink on us.)”

The local dance troupe’s own dancer-choreographers created all the show’s works. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $60 general, $45 for students.

Sacramento Ballet’s website outlines the rest of the 2022-23 season and has links for ticket sales.

Next up is the “Nutcracker,” Dec. 10–24. “This year SacBallet presents its newest staged production with choreography by Sacramento hometown dancers Nicole Haskins, Colby Damon and Julia Feldman.”

“Swan Lake,” Feb. 17–19, features “everything you expect from this incomparable performance plus more mystery, athleticism and majesty.”

“Visions,” March 31–April 2, boasts “fascinating full-motion fast-moving vertical walls and dramatically lit white feathers.”

“Emergence,” May 19–21, “will feature Igor Stravinsky and choreography by George Balanchine.”
