Texas Ballet Theater Artistic Director Ben Stevenson has announced the Company’s 2017-2018 season, which includes a world premiere by Stevenson; a world premiere by TBT dancer Carl Coomer; a moving tribute to soldiers of war; as well as classics such as Beauty and the Beast and Swan Lake.
“Our 2017-2018 season will bring our patrons a bit of everything – from storybook pieces to exciting new world premieres,” Vanessa Logan, TBT’s executive director, said in a news release. “The mixed-repertoire productions are especially exciting with Ben’s world premiere and Carl Coomer’s Henry VIII. The talent within our company is truly amazing.”
The season launches Sept. 7 in Dallas with Tchaikovsky’s classic Beauty and the Beast. That’s followed by the Christmas favorite, The Nutcracker, and the popular spoof of the Tchaikovsky classic in The Nutty Nutcracker, a hilarious take on current events and cultural happenings.
The season includes several mixed repertoire programs, including a performance of Henry VIII, created by TBT dancer Coomer. Also included is the world premiere of Martinů Pieces, composed by Bohuslav Martinů and choreographed by Stevenson.
The season closes with Stevenson’s interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
