For three days only, BalletMet’s Dorothy and the Prince of Oz will be back at in Columbus at the Ohio Theatre – the first time since its premiere during the company’s 2017-2018 season.
Artistic Director Edwaard Liang‘s choreography tells the proposed sequel to the famous L. Frank Baum story Wizard of Oz.
“We are so excited to bring back Dorothy and the Prince of Oz for the second time. It is its own story - completely different from the Wizard of Oz - and that’s what makes it so fun. Most people know the story of the Wizard, but not many know what happened after that story concluded. This ballet tells that story.”
Artistic Director of BalletMet

Along the way, Dorothy falls in love with the Prince and as she tries to break a spell cast on him, a battle ensues putting Oz and the Prince in jeopardy.
