    Bringing Ballet to you.

    The Minnesota Ballet offers productions ranging from full-scale broadway-style productions to small-scale, intimate repertoire dances. The Minnesota Ballet has a bountiful selection of full-length story ballets such as Coppélia, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Dracula, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and—of course—the holiday tradition of The Nutcracker! These productions tour with full stage sets, lush costumes, and the theatrical magic that audiences expect to see.

    For a combined production with one act as a story ballet and a second act with repertoire, the Minnesota Ballet offers such ballets as Swan Lake Act II, Giselle Act II, Firebird, and Carnival of the Animals.

    The Minnesota Ballet’s repertoire includes several of ballet’s famous pas de deux  favorites such as Le Corsaire, Don Quixote, “The Blue Bird”  from Sleeping Beauty, Diane and Acteon, and Harlequinade. Along with classical ballets, the Ballet offers contemporary dance works by such acclaimed choreographers as Broadway choreographer Ginger Thatcher and McKnight Award-winning Penelope Freeh.
