The treasured production incorporates antebellum clothing and local landmarks such as a bayou, the Old State Capitol, and Oak Alley.
The cast features world-class guest artists, BRBT’s company, live music from the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra and more than 300 area children.
Guest artists will include Erica Cornejo, principal dancer with Boston Ballet, and Carlos Molina, former principal dancer with Boston Ballet.
