We’re off to see the Wizard! In a world premiere production, American Midwest Ballet’s Erin Alarcón takes us dancing down the Yellow Brick Road in an imaginative new full-length ballet.

A lifelong fan of both the classic film and the groundbreaking fantasy novel, Alarcón uses the magic of  ballet to create an unforgettable experience through her interpretation of the beloved Oz story and its iconic characters: Dorothy, the storm-tossed but unflappable heroine; her companions the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion; the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch; and, of course, the  Wizard himself.


This performance has concluded.
