“Celebrating my 50th year in America and my 16th season with Texas Ballet Theater, this is a special season with a delightful mix of classic and never-before-seen pieces,” Ben Stevenson, TBT artistic director, said in the release. “We enjoy bringing you world-class art in an exciting and moving way.”
The season will open with two pieces choreographed by Stevenson: at the Winspear Opera House debuts Cinderella Aug. 24-26, and at Bass Performance Hall debuts Cleopatra (accompanied by Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra) Sept. 28-30.
