About the event

Based on both the book and the classic 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz brings Frank Baum’s unforgettable story to life with a ballet twist. As Dorothy, Toto, and their three Ozian friends search for a brain, a heart, some nerve, and a path back to Kansas, they encounter munchkins, monkeys, and witches. But while the Yellow Brick Road may be a familiar path, the clicking red shoes take a few unexpected steps here and there. Choreographer Erin Alarcón let her imagination run free in this original ballet. She blended roles for the company’s professional dancers with parts for 50-plus young guest dancers from the Dubuque area, led by the Academy of Ballet. amballet.org
