On pointe on the Green

The Brady Arts District's First Friday Art Crawl is this Friday, October 7, and in addition to the abundance of art in the district that is now customary on First Fridays, one local performing arts group is celebrating a milestone in style. In honor of Tulsa Ballet’s 60 anniversary, the company will present a free public performance at Guthrie Green.

Tulsa’s treasured Guthrie Green stage will be customized to bring this historic Tulsa Ballet performances to life. So grab a chair or a blanket and sit under the stars for an elegant experience the whole family can enjoy from a company who helped put Tulsa on the map.

 The nearby Woody Guthrie Center lobby will feature a free pop-up exhibit of Tulsa Ballet’s 60-year history. There will also be opportunities to talk to the faculty and staff of the Ballet's Center of Dance Education about classes. Limited 60th Anniversary merchandise, including t-shirts, will also be available for sale. After performances, there will be a meet and greet with some of the dancers.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m. and performances start at 8 p.m. For more information, click here.

After the Green, Tulsa Ballet's next performance will be Onegin, based on Alexander Pushkin's verse-novel "Eugene Onegin," on Oct. 28-30 in the PAC's Chapman Music Hall. Tickets start at $25. More information, including season tickets and performances can be found at tulsaballet.org.
