Webre has been the artistic director of the Washington Ballet for 13 years and co-choreographed the collaborative production of C.S. Lewis' "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." The Washington Ballet worked with Janet Stanford and Matthew Pierce from Imagination Stage to create the fantasy-based dance-theater-musical production, which premiered Wednesday.

A short interview with the composer of the music for Yuri Possokhov's ballet RAkU:

And then we decamp to the lounge to talk about his Japan-set score for Yuri Possokhov’s RAkU, which the company debuted in February ’11 to immediate acclaim, and which I caught–the audience was spellbound–when it was revived this winter. The composer, who’s dressed in a black suit and snappy tie, speaks in a quiet, even tone about his work on RAkU.

The Oklahoma City Ballet company is in Colorado right now. They were supposed to perform Monday night at an arts festival, but the fires got too close for comfort so the dancers were relocated to a resort in nearby Vail.
