The Wizard of Oz


What’s Happening?

This smash-hit production is back by popular demand! Choreographer Erin Alarcón takes us dancing down the Yellow Brick Road in this imaginative full-length story ballet.

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.

A huge success at its 2019 premiere, The Wizard of Oz is sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town!

Saturday, May 13, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, May 14, at 2:00 pm at the Orpheum Theater, Omaha.
