Commissioned in 2017 by Tulsa Ballet and Columbus’ Ballet Met, this dynamic new production features a stunning design by Twist; puppetry that brings fantastical creatures to life and a sumptuous animated set that takes us to amazing locations. Meet Dorothy, Glinda and Scarecrow on the yellow brick road as they make their heroic return to save the land of Oz. Racing against the clock, Dorothy must rescue the Prince from warring kingdoms before tragedy strikes. Another striking collaboration between ballet dancers and puppetry resulting in beautifully manipulated creatures designed especially for their discipline.
