This year, countless concerts and performances have been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, but the Cleveland Ballet is working to bring a sense of normalcy back into the area by holding a series of performances around Northeast Ohio.

Cleveland Ballet will be at ThornCreek Winery in Aurora on Oct. 4 for two performances of Sinatra and Provocativo. The first event will be at 12 p.m during brunch and the second at 6 p.m. during dinner.

Sinatra and Provocativo are set to the iconic songs of crooner Frank Sinatra, including “Fly Me to the Moon” and “The Way You Look Tonight,” for the “Sinatra” half. The “Provocativo” half is inspired by Cleveland Ballet founding Artistic Director Gladisa Guadalupe’s experiences in Buenos Aires.

On Oct. 8, Cleveland Ballet will take their talents to Canton for a performance of The Magic Flute, Mozart’s famous composition brought to life in the company’s original production, at Gervasi Vineyard at 8 p.m. The vineyard will present a dessert and a glass of sparkling glass of Lambrusco for guests to enjoy during the performance.

The next day, on Oct. 9, Cleveland Ballet will return to Gervasi to perform Sinatra and Provocativo at 8 p.m. and on Oct. 10 will hold a second performance of The Magic Flute at 2 p.m. and a second performance of Sinatra and Provocativo at 8 p.m.

Gervasi Vineyard is selling tables in blocks of eight to 10 to ensure social distancing. To purchase tickets or learn more, click here.
