In response to the declared public health emergency, it is with deep regret that all performances of PUSH. from March 26 to March 29 at the Marcus Performing Arts Center are cancelled.

Artistic Director Michael Pink said he is saddened by the decision but is pleased he will be able to present these three important works in a future season.

“Our dancers have worked incredibly hard during the past four weeks creating two world premieres for Milwaukee. These works, alongside Alejandro Cerrudo’s Extremely Close, will reappear in another season. Details about this will be forthcoming,” explained Pink.

Milwaukee Ballet seeks the support of its subscribers and ticket holders as it navigates these unprecedented times.
