Nashville Ballet brings an award-winning production stateside. Sumptuous and sultry, the balletic adaptation of this Tennessee Williams classic brings aging Southern belle Blanche DuBois’s devastating demise centerstage in a beguiling performance meant to mesmerize.

Content and Trigger Warning: This production is recommended for adult audiences due to mature themes. It contains depictions of sexual violence, physical abuse, and emotional abuse; therefore, it may not be suitable for survivors of similar traumas.

Join Nashville Ballet and a panel of experts to discuss the social and cultural issues within the context of our upcoming performance.

Nashville Ballet is proud to partner with local organizations to support the Nashville community. During the month leading up to our performances of A Streetcar Named Desire, Nashville Ballet will be hosting a donation drive for YWCA of Nashville & Middle Tennessee.

YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. It is the vision of YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee to focus on women and girls who desire to create a better quality of life for themselves and/or their families, to achieve self-sufficiency, and to increase their financial strength. The YWCA will also be a spokesperson for those women who have no voice. Further, we will raise the awareness and diminish the incidence of violence and racism. 

Below you will find a wish list for the Weaver Domestic Violence Center, the largest emergency domestic violence shelter in the state of Tennessee. This wish list reflects the current needs of the shelter, with urgent needs bolded. Please consider giving to help support this important cause!
