Choreographer Erin Alarcón takes the audience dancing down the Yellow Brick Road in this imaginative full-length story ballet. American Midwest Ballet presents “The Wizard of Oz” May 13 at 7:30 p.m. and May 14 at 2 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater.
A lifelong fan of both the classic film and the groundbreaking fantasy novel, Alarcón uses the magic of dance 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 Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion; the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch; and, of course, the Wizard himself. This fast-paced, entertaining spectacle tells the story in styles ranging from the grandeur of classical ballet to the energy of large-scale musical theater.
