About The Wizard of Oz
Choreographer Septime Webre has created a full-length ballet, retelling the beloved, classic story. To bring Webre’s revolutionary vision to life took three ballet companies working together over several years. Kansas City Ballet, Colorado Ballet, and Canada’s Royal Winnipeg together produced The Wizard of Oz. The three companies split the costs of creating the full-length story ballet.

 

The Queen City is also turning into the Emerald City! The “Cincinnati” sign at Duke Energy Convention Center will turn green October 25 through November 3 during the run of The Wizard of Oz at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. Dorothy’s ruby slipper pointe shoes are also on display until October 21 at Cincinnati Museum Center. Fans can take a selfie with Dorothy’s slippers before they make their premiere October 25 at the Aronoff, then upload photos to Cincinnati Ballet social media channels, using the hashtag #cbapplause. One lucky fan will win FOUR tickets to a select performance of The Wizard of Oz! We’ll select the winner randomly from one of our social media sites on October 22.
