  • Classical art meets new work.

You’ve probably heard the story of Alice in Wonderland—the classic Disney movie or the time-honored book about a young girl who goes on a weird and wondrous adventure. To see Alice in Wonderland as a ballet is to see it in a totally new light, stage light that is.

Toni Pimble’s version of Alice in Wonderland features all of your favorite characters with beautiful and exciting imagery including floating jellyfish, pink flamingos, and a tea table that moves all on its own! This light and playful ballet is full of surprises that will keep you on your toes!

Also on the program with Alice in Wonderland, Eugene Ballet premieres a stunning new work by Resident Choreographer Suzanne Haag based on the children’s book The Large Rock and The Little Yew by author Gregory Ahlijian. This heart-warming story of courage and perseverance tells the tale of a little Yew tree that grows and thrives against the odds.

  • Fun for the whole family.

Bring friends and family, young and young-at-heart, to experience this exciting double feature together! Ticket prices are $25 to $60 and we offer discounts for groups, and youth and college age patrons.

Enjoy participating as well? We’re hosting a costume contest and a photo booth in the Hult Center lobby before both performances! Fancy yourself as a Queen of Hearts or are you more of a Mad Hatter? Show us what you’ve got and you could win one of several prizes!

  • Support local business.

Our ballets are performed locally at the stunning Hult Center for the Performing Arts, and they are created right here in Eugene! Our dancers, choreographers, and production crew are all Lane County artisans, plus The Large Rock and The Little Yew was written by local author Gregory Ahlijian! Mr. Ahlijian wrote this encouraging story after being inspired by one of his students at Jasper Mountain Center. Proceeds from the original book sales funded a new courtyard for the organization.

  • Try something new.

If your New Year’s resolution is to try something new, here’s your opportunity! To make art more accessible, we lowered our least-expensive tickets from $30 to $25 for our 2019/20 season. Never been to a ballet? We’ve got you covered. We host a free Ballet Insider pre-show talk 45 minutes before each performance so you can get all the information you need to be a ballet expert!

  • Great art happens here.

You don’t have to travel to the big cities to experience great art—it’s happening right here in Eugene! In fact, we frequently take our productions on the road and tour around the Pacific Northwest. Luckily, you don’t have to go far and you won’t have to deal with as much traffic to get there.

Join us for Alice in Wonderland and The Large Rock and The Little Yew for a live performance experience you’ll never forget!
