The METROPOLITAN BALLET is proud to announce a new home at the HHS AUDITORIUM in Minnetonka/Hopkins. ~ I was unaware of the treasure just a few blocks away from our new facilityâ€¦ ~ exclaims Founder/Artistic Director Erik Sanborn ~ â€¦this venue is ideal for ballet, just under one thousand seats and a generous deep, wide stage with a fly system, cyc and a deep pit that provides great acoustics. The orchestra pit is critical for our collaborations with the symphony, we need 60 musicians in the pit and a deep wide stage. Free parking and easy access make this state of the art modern facility ideal for our purposes. ~
