Tulsa Ballet to reschedule the American premiere of Vendetta, a Mafia Story to March 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

TULSA, OK – The Tulsa Ballet’s American premiere of Vendetta, a Mafia Story, by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, re-scheduled for October 29th through November 1st at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center has been postponed due to ongoing health risk concerns. Vendetta has been tentatively postponed to March 25-28, 2021 to ensure the safety and health of their dancers, staff, and audience.

“Since our last communication, announcing our intention to premiere Vendetta in October, the COVID-19 cases in our community and state have not subsided enough to safely warrant large gatherings of artists, stage crews, and audiences at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center,” says Artistic Director Marcello Angelini. “The safety of our patrons and employees is the ultimate decision-making factor in our organization. Given the number of new daily cases in our county and state, the health consequences of this pathogen for our patrons and its contagiousness, we feel it would be imprudent to present this large show at this point in time.”

Tulsa Ballet is currently working on reimagining the fall 2020 season in order to provide programming in a safe manner. More details will be released soon.
