On Aug. 1, Ib Andersen began the process of choreographing "Cinderella" with dancers Jillian Barrell and Russell Clarke.

Two-and-a-half months before its premiere, Andersen started the slow process of creating the steps that Ballet Arizona will perform this week.

"It took me six weeks to choreograph all of it," said Andersen, Ballet Arizona's artistic director. "Just bulldozing away. Now for the past couple of weeks, we are tweaking and refining it."

Charleston Ballet Theatre is reviewed in Don Quixote:

In these days when the average theater experience tends toward the minimalist, seeing an elaborate production on a grand scale is a real treat for the senses. For no matter how exceptional the black box or one-person show might be, there is still a small part of each of us that misses the pageantry: the bright costumes, soaring sets, and an ensemble that stretches the length of the stage.

Charleston Ballet Theater's Don Quixote has all those things, plus outstanding dancing and a sweet, comic story.

Just in time for Halloween, Carolina Ballet will provide Raleigh with a night of horror at the dual performances.

As a double feature, The Masque of the Red Death will be performed first, then Dracula, with a short intermission in between. The Masque of the Red Death is based on a short story by American Gothic author Edgar Allen Poe. The performance of Dracula will be based on the novel by one of Ireland's most renowned authors, Bram Stoker.

Artistic director Ben Stevenson is bringing to North Texas one of the oldest ballets still performed today.

"In those old ballets, it was very sort of like the silent movies, you know, so we try and bring the feelings more natural and more up to date," said Stevenson.
