HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — The Huntsville Ballet Company (HBC) will return to the stage this fall for its first full season since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

HBC has only performed in smaller venues during the pandemic.

The 2022-23 season will contain a variety of performances inspired by the American West, a best-of showcase, a look into Cinderella’s story, and one of the Rocket City’s most famous holiday shows, “The Nutcracker.”
