Experience the magic of this timeless J.M. Barrie classic right before your eyes, as Wendy Darling and her younger brothers John and Michael fly high through the late-night London sky to reach Neverland with Peter Pan on a journey that’ll lead you through exciting action, close calls to danger and a run-in with one of the most legendary villains of all. Witness several flying sequences with dancers suspended in midair and be immersed in a magical score composed by Philip Feeney, bringing the adventure, nature, love and beloved coming-of-age tale to the stage. 

The production was originally scheduled for the 2019-20 Milwaukee Ballet season, but the performances were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Ballet's rendition – a smash success previously in 2010 and 2012 – will making its long-awaited comeback beginning next month.
