Art and Morality collide when Michael Pink’s Dorian Gray makes its world premiere at the historic Pabst Theater. Based on the acclaimed novel - "The Picture of Dorian Gray" - it's the story of a beautiful, innocent young man's seduction, moral corruption, and eventual downfall.
Dorian wishes that his portrait would grow old while he remains forever young. His wish is granted, but at what cost? He is seduced by Lord Henry Wotton’s ideal of a return to the Hellenic life in which one yields to every desire, every temptation. His spiraling pursuit of selfish pleasure and disregard for those whose lives he destroys leads him to his ultimate fate and self-destruction.
Dorian Gray explores the hedonism of eternal youth, mortality, art, and sensuality in a performance sure to stimulate your senses and rouse your emotions. This production will be Milwaukee Ballet's first full-length work at the Pabst Theater. Members of Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra will join the cast to make this truly a historic occasion.
Contains mature themes. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
