★★★★½ – The Arizona Republic

Surrounded by the lush desert landscape with the setting sun as a backdrop, Ib Andersen’s vision for dance in the desert continues in 2019 with Eroica. Back by popular demand by Arizona audiences, this immersive performance draws sellout crowds with ballet that takes chances and challenges emotional boundaries in the breathtaking setting of the Desert Botanical Garden.

Eroica is a bold testament to shifts that occur throughout personal, creative, and collective histories.” – Lynn Trimble, Phoenix New Times

This production is made possible by gifts from the Dorrance Family Foundation, Carol and Randy Schilling and supporters of the New Works Initiative.

Audiences are invited to arrive early to enjoy a meal (available for purchase) as the sun sets. Click here to view menu.  A full cash bar is available as well.
