th Anniversary theme this year celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Lady of the Camellias, the 20th Anniversary of Lambarena, as well as the inclusion of my ballet Going For Baroque to celebrate the 20th Anniversary Season of Tulsa Ballet Artistic Director Marcello Angelini. 

   I am thrilled to have the opportunity to create my third version of The Nutcracker this year. The Nutcracker, which will debut in December with Grand Rapids Ballet, will feature the creative vision of Chris Van Allsburg,  renowned author of 
The Polar ExpressZathuraJumanji and other classics; and Eugene Lee, the Tony Award winning set designer of Bernstein’s Candide, Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, and Wicked. Lee is also the Emmy Award winning production designer for NBC’s Saturday Night Live and recently designed the new set for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.  And if you happen to be in Kentucky during the holiday season, you will still be able to see my second version of The Nutcracker performed
by Louisville Ballet as well.

Swipe, with music by Gabriel Prokofiev will be performed by Singapore Dance Theatre, as well as by Richmond Ballet. More information on an exciting and important future tour of Swipe by Richmond Ballet will be announced soon.

Stay tuned for news about a revival by Diablo Ballet, important touring dates for

In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle a few months ago, I was asked about how I got started on a career in dance, and then in choreography. This article, "Val Caniparoli - S.F. Ballet's 'Tears' one of many creations" gives a good recap of my trajectory, for those of you who are interested.
