<a href=Tommy Emmanuel @ Fox in Broadway" border="0" bheight="100" width="100" align="right"> Tommy EmmaNUEL @ FOX
The Rialto Theatre
Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia's most respected musicians. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, Tommy plays all that - and more - on one guitar. Guitar legend Chet Atkins was one of the first to inspire Emmanuel to try this "fingerpicker" style as a child. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans.

UA Crowder Hall
One of the most in-demand baritones today and a frequent interpreter of new works, Gunn's compelling stage presence - People Magazine named him one of the 'Sexiest Men Alive' in 2008 - and musical versatility have given him star billing in operas around the world, ranging from contemporary works to Mozart's masterpieces. Singing with orchestras and in recital, the Grammy-winning Gunn has ventured outside the standard opera repertoire with appearances in "Camelot" with the New York Philharmonic and "Showboat" at Carnegie Hall. The New York Times says, "Nathan Gunn commands an operatic baritone whose mighty heft and richness confer an outsize authority on everything he touches."

UA Stevie Eller
Balanchine's three-part, evening-long ballet, Jewels, is one of the jewels of his output. Created in 1967, Jewels revisits the central pillars of his glorious career. The second ballet, Rubies, set to Stravinsky, celebrates American dance virtues, filled with sexy Broadway and jazz references. The work is pure Balanchine, full of the abstract stage patterns, novel arm and feet movements, and virtuoso fireworks typical of his style. UA's School of Dance is honored as only the third university dance program to be permitted to perform this work. Amy Ernst's poetic work for eight women, entitled Songs of Sanctuary, will return to celebrate its 10th anniversary since being invited to the American College Dance Festival's national gala. RATS!! by Douglas Nielsen, with vocals by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. will be presented on this program as well. Added to the male cast that exemplifies the infamous 'Rat Pack' will be the presence of women, as Shirley MacLaine, Anne Margaret and Liza Minnelli were considered essential to the entourage of that time. Along with robust choreography, gestures based on American Sign Language are incorporated into this dance. James Clouser's new ballet Beachers, to be danced to the music of Dimitri Shostakovitch, presents a series of scenes that take place at the seashore and features flirtatious flappers, health enthusiasts, those who sun but never swim, a squall and a mirage revealing a dalliance between Venus and Neptune. Michael Williams plans a new work set to a vibrant score in the contemporary musical genre of Nu Jazz. With orchestration ranging from traditional to experimental, the melodies of Nu Jazz are fresh, and its rhythms new and alive.

Premium Blend in Broadway PREMIUM BLEND
School of Dance
The award winning ballet, Jewels, choreographed by George Balanchine has been called the first full-length abstract ballet Balanchine created. It premiered in 1967 by the New York City Ballet. For this three-part ballet, Balanchine used as his inspiration three different composers and the artistry of jewelry designer Claude Arpels. Rubies, the middle section (between Emeralds and Diamonds) is a clever and lighthearted romp, reminiscent of other collaborations between Igor Stravinsky and Balanchine. Set to Stravinsky's Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra, this 19 minute piece for 15 dancers has become popular as a stand-alone ballet.
