Better late than never. It took till Act 3 for a new Juliet to fledge her wings and shed the nervous caution, but Melissa Hamilton, debuting yesterday afternoon in probably the Royal Ballet’s most coveted ballerina role, suddenly did what we all knew she could, and after a subdued first act seized the drama and the story. And, in Romeo’s phrase, light broke - the sun in the east. A fair new Juliet.

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre presents several ballets each season it knows will be very popular with a wide audience, ones which can be taken primarily as entertainment.

In mounting John Neumeier`s 1983 "A Streetcar Named Desire" over the weekend at the Benedum Center, Downtown, the ballet offered an artistically ambitious work that is fascinating, challenging and hauntingly powerful. It is the first American company to perform the work.

Performing throughout the world, UBC is experiencing its busiest time ever.

“It is just like how the status of Korea changed from being a recipient of global support to an aid donor. Before, we used to be determined to introduce Korea’s ballet to the world but we are now talking about sharing our ballet with the world. I believe Korean ballet can bring a fresh influence to the world ballet scene,” Julia Moon, president and director of Universal Ballet, told The Korea Herald.
