Melissa Barak makes a new work for Richmond Ballet.

Quote

Her first piece for the ballet company was short — less than 10 minutes — and danced in flat shoes as opposed to en pointe. Her current production is danced en pointe and its four movements clock in at a lengthier 23 minutes. It is her first fully commissioned piece for Richmond Ballet.

The San Angelo Civic Ballet gets a name change.

Quote

The Ballet was chartered in 1983 as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit by co-founders Ann Southall, Debbie Carter, Teresa Branon, Mary Lynn Kusior and Gene Smith to produce "The Nutcracker" locally. It has since expanded its repertoire far beyond the annual "Nutcracker" production, with five contemporary youth and classical ballet performances each year.

The new productions of the season are Michael Messerer’s interpretation of the classic Petipa choreography of Don Quixote, and Anna-Marie Holmes’s Le corsaire in contribution with Tamás Solymosi, which will be presented at the Opera House for the first time. The new season is a Hungarian Season at the Opera. On this occasion, and as part of the nationwide Bartók Season, a triple ballet performance entitled Bartók DanceTryptich will feature the classic The Miraculous Mandarin by László Seregi as well as the premieres of Dance Suite by Zsolt Juhász, and on the 100th anniversary of its world premiere, The Wooden Prince by Pál Frenák. The world premiere of a more modern production, A Streetcar Named Desire by leading ballet master Marianna Venekei and composer László Dés will take place at the Erkel Theatre as the closure of the ballet season in summer 2017.

Dancers from Nashville Ballet talk about performing in "Cinderella."

Quote

First presented in 2011, Paul Vasterling’s original choreography showcases men in the roles of the evil stepsisters. Christopher Stuart, Jon Upleger and Judson Veach will alternate playing the roles — dancing in pointe shoes for the first time in their respective careers.

 

“It’s definitely not easy,” says Veach, who also will share the role of the Prince with Upleger. “Backstage, everyone keeps asking how we’re doing, and we say: ‘Oh yeah, we’re fine — no problem.’ Then they walk away, and we look at each other and say: ‘Man, this hurts so much!’
