Watch the documentary film "A Ballet Is Born"
Dear Friends and Supporters,
On May 22, 2021, Saint Louis Ballet presented our annual Spring Gala and Auction. The usual in-person soiree was offered virtually this year, and we utilized the opportunity to provide our supporters with a peek behind the curtain in A Ballet is Born. A mini-documentary about the process of creating a new ballet, A Ballet is Born is available for viewing at Saint Louis Ballet’s Youtube channel or on this webpage.
We are thrilled to announce that this virtual event generated over $120,000 in contributions to Saint Louis Ballet! These proceeds will be used to offset the losses in earned revenue over the last year, and help us return to in-person programs on stage and in the schools. Another element of our event was an online auction, which featured many wonderful items donated by philanthropically-minded individuals and companies. See a full listing of our auction donors below and consider patronizing these businesses, which give so much to the St. Louis community.
Saint Louis Ballet is grateful to you, our audience, for your amazing support. A special thank you Centene, Ameren, Mark Eggert and Julie Tang, Pat and Dr. Leo Whiteside and Tom and Carol Voss for their continued participation as major sponsors of the Spring Gala.
