After a 5-year hiatus, Ballet Arizona and Desert Botanical Garden are collaborating again for the return of MOMIX’s Opus Cactus for three performances only, Jan. 12-13 in the magical setting of the Orpheum Theatre. Audiences can experience the tradition they knew and loved, as well as a new look, fresh energy and fun surprises.

MOMIX brings the landscape of the American Southwest to life through the illusionistic style of Opus Cactus, which takes audiences on a dynamic journey of towering cacti, slithering lizards and snakes, scurrying insects, and other creatures that call the desert home. Opus Cactus was originally created as a 20-minute act in 2001 for the Ballet Arizona.
Since 2012, Ballet Arizona and Desert Botanical Garden have collaborated with the hopes of infusing art and nature in an unforgettable experience to challenge emotional boundaries. After the success of Ib Andersen’s TOPIA, which has played at the Garden twice, Desert Botanical Garden and Ballet Arizona will continue its partnership until 2020. Arizonans and international visitors continue to be enchanted by works of art that embrace the desert as a stunning backdrop.
Tickets are on sale now and start at $36. For more additional ticket information, visit or call 602-381-0188.
