The 18 dancers of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company flood the stage with such energy and intensity that they’ve been compared to “…life-sustaining milk pouring over a dry rock” (Artburst Miami). In a rare U.S. appearance, they return to Minneapolis with Ohad Naharin’s inventive, high-octane roller coaster ride of a retrospective, Decadance 2017. An assortment of brilliantly remixed material that spans the 25+ years under his direction, each eccentric excerpt—grounded in Naharin’s unique Gaga dance research—has the signature physicality, creativity, and precision for which this company is renowned. With a dash of comedy, scintillating storytelling, and a musical smorgasbord that samples rock ‘n roll, samba, and the classics, Decadance 2017 is fast, fun, and thrilling.
“In a stunning evening of contemporary dance, Batsheva proves again and again that they are one of the greatest companies on the planet and one of the coolest as well.” –Limelight Magazine
“Dance that reaches an emotional pitch that expresses what words cannot.” –Sydney Morning Herald

“To create something new, we must first love what is old.” Set in San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late fifties, Flower Drum Song is a funny and moving story which explores what it means to be an American and touches the history of every person whose forbearers once arrived as strangers to these shores. The new, fully revised version includes David Henry Hwang’s Tony Award-nominated text. This co-production with Mu Performing Arts is directed by Randy Reyes.

A great American Musical Theatre classic, magically returns to the Main Stage!
Come along to the idyllic kingdom of Camelot. Revel in the rich, deeply romantic legend of King Arthur and his beloved Queen, Guenevere. Celebrate the dashing Sir Lancelot, the gallant Knights of the Round Table, the mystical wizard Merlin and the Lady of the Lake from the mists of Avalon.
Beyond romance, noble quests and magic spells lie twisted plots, inner demons and betrayal – all threatening to snuff out Arthur’s dreams to build the greatest kingdom ever known – one where true justice and compassion reign supreme. The ideals of Camelot are ones we long for in our own day, making Camelot a hopeful legend for all time.
Written by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe (My Fair Lady, Brigadoon), Camelot is a multi-Tony Award-winner, including one for Best Musical Score. Camelot is based on the King Arthur legends found in T.H. White’s novel The Once and Future King.
Rediscover the romance and grandeur of Camelot - at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.
