Tickets to Nevada Ballet Theatre's 2015 Fall, Winter Performances Now on Sale
Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT) celebrates its 44th performance season and 4th year as Resident Ballet Company of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts by announcing the release of single tickets for the first half of its 2015-2016 season of grace, strength, artistry and celebration: A Choreographer's Showcase, A Balanchine Celebration, and The Nutcracker. Full season subscriptions are also on sale, and single tickets for the remainder of the company's 2015-2016 season will go on sale at a later date.
Now in its 8th season, A Choreographers' Showcase will take the stage on Oct. 11 and 18 at the Mystère Theatre inside Treasure Island, featuring a unique blending of talent from the artists of Cirque du Soleil and NBT. Original choreography, commissioned each and every year of the collaboration, is created by the artists themselves and showcases the perfect package of ballet, contemporary, and modern dance infused with acrobatics. Audience members who attend A Choreographers' Showcase are in for a bold, one-of-a-kind, and awe-inspiring performing arts experience.
Offering a masterful medley of iconic works from the 20th century's greatest choreographer, George Balanchine, NBT performs A Balanchine Celebration on Nov. 7 and 8. This exciting trio of ballets, complemented by a full orchestra, begins with one of Balanchine's most meaningful and historical works, Serenade, the first ballet he choreographed in America. Following Serenade, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue - a Las Vegas premiere - ushers in Broadway dreams, Russian dancers and the Mob from the classic Rodgers and Hart comedy On Your Toes, which demonstrates Balanchine's triumphs on both stage and screen. A celebratory finale of romance and love set against a city skyline completes the evening with Who Cares? where the bubbly Americana songbook of George Gershwin is brought to life with colorful ensemble dancing, romantic duets and sparkling solos.
Las Vegas' most beloved holiday tradition returns in December with NBT's The Nutcracker, choreographed by Artistic Director James Canfield. This larger-than-life production beautifully fills every inch of the Reynolds Hall stage, for which it was specifically created. With eight performances from Dec. 12 through Dec. 20, and a full orchestra, a cast of over 100 performers will bring to life to what the Las Vegas Sun calls "the most visually beautiful production ever staged in Reynolds Hall."
