In May 2019 Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet is proud to close our 79th season with the Canadian premier of The Wizard of Oz.
L. Frank Baum’s tale of family, friendship, and courage is vividly brought to life by choreographer Septime Webre in this family friendly ballet. Join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion as they journey down the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City. Filled with all the familiarity of the classic story – Dorothy and Toto swept to Oz join up with three unlikely heroes to see the Wizard, their triumph over the Wicked Witch, and the quest to return home – yet realized with a bold, new spectacle of music, costumes, sets, projections and special effects.
