Charles Isherwood reviews Cheri for the New York Times:

The rapture of sexual love and the disorienting pain of parting are viewed as through frosted glass in “Chéri,” a dramatically muted but gorgeously danced new work from the choreographer Martha Clarke, based on the titular novella by Colette.

"Romeo and Juliet" was the ballet that virtually started it all for Nicolas Petrov. It was the first professional production that he saw as a student in Yugoslavia. Later, as the founding artistic director of Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, he created the first American production in 1971. Now he will come full circle as the full-length ballet is revived at Point Park University, marking his final bow in a 67-year dancing career.

A review of Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's Nutcracker:

Spurred on by an enthusiastic audience, the opening night cast took chances with Mr. Orr's by now familiar choreography, elevating it to a new level. Christine Schwaner (Marie), so wide-eyed and fresh, and Alexandre Silva (Nephew/Nutcracker), looking trimmer, something that brought a lightness and spring to his jumps, capitalized on their success in "Giselle" last year.
