TULSA BALLET PRESENTS THE MAGICAL STORY BALLET OF DOROTHY AND THE PRINCE OF OZ

TULSA, OK – Tulsa Ballet brings the magical story of Dorothy and the Prince of Oz back to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center stage, February 13-16. For tickets and information, call (918)-749-6006 or visit tulsaballet.org.

After a successful run of the $1 million full-length production back in 2017, Dorothy and the Prince of Oz returns with vibrant costumes, epic battle scenes, and animated puppets from visionary Basil Twist. A new adaptation on a classic story, Dorothy and the Prince of Oz is expected to thrill audiences of all ages, yet again.

“I am so happy to see Dorothy and the Emerald City back on the stage of the Tulsa PAC,” says Tulsa Ballet Artistic Director Marcello Angelini. “When Edwaard Liang and I first envisioned this project, we wanted to give our audiences a new work with a familiar title, and yet one where the title was just the gate to a greatly entertaining, and artistically compelling brand-new show. We wanted the visuals to be spectacular, the choreography challenging, the music captivating and the story easy to follow, if full of twists and turns. We wanted our companies, BalletMet and Tulsa Ballet, to have a 21st century classic structured on the tradition of the 19th century masterpieces.”

Angelini continues, “Watching the show today, three years after its premiere, I believe we achieved all these goals. Dorothy and her Prince are a power to recon with, and a joy to spend time with. I want to, again, thank Mrs. Mollie Williford, my first President of the Board, dear friend and extremely generous supporter of Tulsa Ballet, for championing this effort.”

Dorothy and the Prince of Oz will run from February 13-16, 2020 at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. All performances include live music provided by Tulsa Symphony Orchestra. Tickets start as low as $25 and may be purchased by calling (918) 749-6006 or by visiting www.tulsaballet.org.
