This is the first chance to view selections for BalletMet’s 2014-15 season.

The highlight is an excerpt from “Twisted: A Trio of Excellence,” which will feature the dance premieres from Val Caniparoli and BalletMet artistic director Edwaard Liang, and is a collaboration between the dance company, Opera Columbus and the Columbus Symphony and Chorus that will “twist” the three art forms together.

Other highlights include “The Nutcracker” and a sneak-peak of BalletMet’s new second company, BalletMet 2.
