Fierce & Feminine     October 21-23 &  28-30, 2016 | The Lab Theater

Experience the diverse and creative force of compelling women choreographers, each with their own storied MDT history. Set to the music of Dvorak and known for its line, fluidity and utter fearlessness, MDT reprises founder Loyce Houlton’s beloved masterwork Wingborne in honor of its 45th anniversary. Former MDT resident choreographer Wynn Fricke returns with her unique prowess, premiering Cold Air a work inspired by and set to live piano by composer Peter O’Gorman. Expanding her choreographic voice, MDT company member Helen Hatch forges new ground in a dynamic series of vignettes each with their own unique movement. Highlighting the company’s classical side, MDT Artistic Director Lise Houlton premieres Dispatches set to the music of Mozart.

Once again, imaginative minds everywhere are flocking to Minnesota’s outlandish holiday favorite.

Continuing its tradition of enchanting audiences, Loyce Houlton’s Nutcracker Fantasy remains one of Minnesota’s most treasured holiday events.

Carmina Burana     January 20-22, 2017 | The Cowles Center

What’s more exciting than the portrayal of love and lust, desire and longing, combined with raucous and bawdy good fun? Watching it all spill from the stage in this sizzling collaboration, featuring a dynamic mix of MDT dancers, acclaimed vocalists, chorale members and musicians. Carmina Burana is a sensuous and gritty romp, with the stirring and powerful music of composer Carl Orff, based on poems written by 13th century vagabond poets…those rascals!  “a breathtaking amalgam of music, movement, and imagery.” – Pioneer Press

Spring Season     April 7-9, 2016 | The Cowles Center

Celebrating local music icon Bob Dylan, MDT presents the Minneapolis premiere of Moonshine by world-renowned British choreographer Christopher Bruce. Set to early folk songs from Dylan’s Bootleg Series, the provocative piece explores the emotional, sometimes haunting, stories of four traveling performers. Also highlighting MDT’s classical and contemporary aesthetic, the program will feature the revival of the enigmatic and beautiful Mythical Hunters by legendary chorographer Glen Tetley. A historic staple in MDT’s repertory, the company has shared the acclaimed work, exploring the cycle of life, with audiences from Minnesota to Spoleto, Italy.
