The highlight of the recently announced Tulsa Ballet 2024-2025 Season will be the world premiere of Kenneth Tindall’s Alice in Wonderland commissioned specifically for the company. The creative team for this production includes three-time Tony Award winner designer Christopher Oram and composer Alexandra Harwood.


Alice in Wonderland will be the event of 2025, in our city, state and country,” says Angelini. “I have been looking at a dance version of Alice in Wonderland for over twenty years. Each one of them has something beautiful and magical, but none of them really ‘worked’ for me, so… we’re making our own version!”


Annual favorites such as the repertory programs “Creations in Studio K” and “Signature Series” will be rounded out with the full-length Dracula by Ben Stevenson, Andre Prokovsky’s The Three Musketeers, and of course, the holiday classic The Nutcracker (Val Caniparoli and Ma Cong).

The season kicks off with “Creations in Studio K” which will feature new works solely from women choreographers: world premieres from Alice Topp and Young Soon Hue, and Something to Remember You By Stephanie Martinez.

In planning this “Creations”, Tulsa Ballet Artistic Director Marcello Angelini said,

“I am thrilled to dedicate the first program of the season to three very accomplished female choreographers. Each one of them brings something special to the program, which will make the 2024 Creations in Studio K performances strikingly unique.”


About the three works on this season’s “Signature Series” program, Angelini said,

“Yuri Possokhov’s Classical Symphony is probably the most challenging dance a classical ballet company can perform, one that mixes the pure classical form of the Russian tradition with the speed, agility, performing quality and lightness of the American.

Divenire by Nicolo Fonte awed the Berkshire audiences at the Jacobs Pillow festival in the summer of 2023, earning the company rave reviews.

To close such a consequential program, what could be more electrifying than the music of the pop singing legends of the last 50 years, all danced by the dancers of Tulsa Ballet with the choreography of Kenneth Tindall [in his work Legends of Pop]?
