NEVADA BALLET THEATRE ANNOUNCES ITS 2013-2014 SEASON

COMPANY PREPARES FOR A SPLENDID SEASON OF NEW WORKS, CELEBRATED MASTERPIECES AND TIMELESS CLASSICS AS IT ENTERS INTO ITS SECOND YEAR

AS RESIDENT BALLET COMPANY OF THE SMITH CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

 

LAS VEGAS, NV (Monday, March 25, 2013) Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT) announced today its 2013-2014 Season, beginning with the widely popular collaboration between NBT and Cirque du Soleil, returning to the Mystère Theatre in October. The company will then showcase a special tribute to Tchaikovsky with two famous story ballets – Swan Lake Act II and Sleeping Beauty Act III.  In December, the Magic continues with The Nutcracker, a premiere production choreographed by Artistic Director James Canfield that debuted last year at The Smith Center. In order to remain affordable, NBT will offer patrons four performances without orchestra.

 

A one-of-a-kind dance experience, The Studio Series returns for a fourth year with new elements - adding to the dynamicism of original works and commissioned pieces. Finally, the season ends with three works as part of an energetic repertory program including the return of acclaimed choreographer Matthew Neenan’s bold work, At the border, with live musical accompaniment.

 

“It is always exciting to announce a new season,” said Artistic Director James Canfield. “By presenting audiences with revered classics as well as unique contemporary works, presented in our new performance home, The Smith Center, we hope to infuse new interest in our art form among the Las Vegas community.”
