The restoration of a garden and revival of the spirit. A balletic masterpiece of surrealism and enchantment, State Street Ballet’s The Secret Garden is a riveting fusion of dynamic visuals, cutting-edge direction/choreography by Josie Walsh and luscious, shape-shape shifting costumes, set to an original cinematic score by Paul Rivera Jr. Thoughtful and heart-warming, The Secret Garden tells a story of loss, dreams, hope and the search for happiness that transcends generations. Inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett’s famous novel, imaginative staging transforms this classic story into a modern day ballet for all ages.
