Each of these locally revered and internationally recognized arts organizations brings its own distinct specializations and together create an extraordinary smörgåsbord of talent.
“So rarely do organizations of this caliber collaborate so intensely on stage,” said BalletMet Artistic Director Edwaard Liang. “This will be an unparalleled experience for both the audience and artists.”
“This will truly be a delight for the eyes and ears,” stated Opera Columbus Artistic Director Peggy Kriha Dye. “We have integrated the remarkable talents of all three companies into an original and spectacular collaboration that showcases the world-class talent living and working right here in Columbus.”
“The artistic, collaborative relationship between these organizations has quite simply produced a remarkable, not-to-be-missed work of art,” said CSO Managing Director and CEO Bill Conner. “Partnerships such as this are what makes Columbus a great city to live in and puts us on the map on a national scale.”
