The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a timeless story for all ages about the power of friendship, self-confidence and family. Nancy Page's premiere choreography is based on author L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story, which follows the adventures of a young girl, Dorothy, as she is transported from the comforts of her family home to a magical land fraught with conflict, mystery and fantastical creatures. Traveling along a Yellow Brick Road, Dorothy meets and is befriended by three jovial characters: a Tin Man, a Scarecrow, and a Cowardly Lion each on their own personal quest. But beware, for Dorothy and her comrades are also pursued by a Wicked Witch, determined to retrieve Dorothy’s magical slippers. How will Dorothy combat the Wicked Witch, help her friends and find a way back home? Can the mysterious Wizard of Oz in the Emerald City be the answer? Audiences may know the answer to these questions, but seeing the story unfold as told through the beauty, grace and athleticism of ballet will be a new experience and real treat for young and old alike.
