Ballet Arizona's Topia at Desert Botanical Garden Back for a Second Season

There aren't many places where you can catch a ballet under the stars, let alone in one of the world's only places created for the study and display of the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. But last year, Ballet Arizona and the Desert Botanical Garden teamed up for the world premiere of Topia, an original production by Ballet Arizona artistic director Ib Andersen. With beautiful music, choreography, and the unique backdrop of the Papago Buttes, the performances were a genuine gift to audience members.

Those who missed out on breathtaking experience of nature and art will be happy to know what the company's gearing up for a second go-round. And trust us, you don't want to miss this again.
