After more than a year without live performance due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Maine State Ballet is relaunching with neoclassical ballets ‘Britten’ and ‘Souvenir’.

According to the Maine State Ballet, these “storyless” ballets weave music and movement into visually powerful pieces.

The performance of “Souvenir” will also be available as a free on-demand video performance from Sunday, June 20 through Saturday, July 3 on Donations are accepted.

Artistic director Linda MacArthur Miele, a former member of the New York City Ballet, choreographed the performances.

The shows will take place at the Lopez Theater in Falmouth at 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, June 17 and 18, and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 19. Tickets range from $10 to $15, with discounts for seniors and children, and can be purchased at or by calling (207) 781-3587.

Maine State Ballet is home to the Maine State Ballet Company, the 175-seat Lopez Theater and affiliated School of the Performing Arts, with continuous instruction in ballet, tap and jazz for over 100 years.
