Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra

Milwaukee Ballet is one of only a few companies in the nation to include live music in its performances, a core part of our artistic repertoire. We're proud to present the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra in "Romeo & Juliet"  and "Mirror Mirror." The Milwaukee Children's Choir will join the Orchestra in "The Nutcracker" as included in Tchaikovsky's original composition, but rarely performed live.

Support the Live Music Fund
Milwaukee Ballet is committed to the use of live music from the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra and believes in the power of live music to enhance the enjoyment of ballet performance. At the request of many others who also value live musical accompaniment, Milwaukee Ballet is proud to launch the Live Music Fund to provide the resources to develop original scores for future productions. Donors to this fund will be recognized in the program and annual report.
