Based on the 1844 novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers will bring revenge, duels, trickery and triumph to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s stage. D’Artagnan, a young man without fortune, travels to Paris with hopes of joining the King’s Musketeers. In a case of mistaken identity, D’Artagnan instigates a duel with Porthos, one of the men he hoped to join. During the duel, they come under attacked by the villainous Rochefort and his guards of the Cardinal’s regiment. D’Artagnan realizes who he’s fighting and decides teams up with The Three Musketeers – Athos, Porthos and Aramis – to overpower the guards. “All for one, one for all” links the four together, setting the classic in motion. For the rest of the performance, audience members will see the talent and grace of the Tulsa Ballet swing, leap, kick and fly through adventure after adventure as D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers fight to return the Queen’s diamond necklace before her love affair with the English ambassador, Buckingham, is made public by the Cardinal and Milady. Will D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers save the Queen’s honor? Constance, the queen’s lady-in-waiting, captivated by D’Artagnan, a mutual feeling, believes they have what it takes. The Three Musketeers will swing into the Tulsa Performing Arts Center on Friday, March 27. The adventure continues through Sunday, March 29. For more information, visit
