History will take place at the Morris Performing Arts Center this summer as world-class artists and the South Bend Symphony Orchestra come together to perform the largest original professional ballet to debut in Indiana.

New York City Ballet Principal Dancer Isabella LaFreniere graces the stage as Raffaella, and International Principal Dancer Jonatan Lujan shines as the Prince.
