Farm to Ballet comes to New Haven Sunday

NEW HAVEN — Vermont’s Farm to Ballet fourth summer season of dance performances in agricultural settings will continue this weekend with the troupe’s only Addison County performance. Golden Well Farm and Apiary at 1089 River Road in New Haven will host the talented ballet dancers on Sunday, July 22, at 6 p.m.
Farmers, food, community, live classical musicians, and the graceful art of ballet. This is what makes Vermont’s Farm to Ballet so unique. Now in its fourth year, agriculture and art will provide audiences with a delightful summer evening of entertainment with eight performances on farms throughout Vermont. Produced by Ballet Vermont, this summer’s six shows include a live string sextet during the entire feature-length production.
The ballet takes place without the traditional staging, lights, or backdrop of a theater-based performance. Audiences enjoy the pastoral setting of the farm, animals, equipment, classical music, and learn more about what is involved in operating a sustainable farming operation.
Designed to tell the story of a Vermont farming operation from spring to fall, the performances serve as fundraisers to support and honor the work of local farmers and conservation organizations. Over the last three summer season’s, the project has raised over $55,000.
Tickets, available at farmtoballet.org, are $20 for adult and kids 12 and under are free. Tickets are $25 on the day of the event.
