NBC 5 and the Texas Ballet Theater invite you to experience an eclectic repertoire including works by Glen Tetley, Val Caniparoli, and Texas Ballet Theater’s Artistic Director, Ben Stevenson, O.B.E. at Lambarena, Voluntaries and More March 1 – 3, at Bass Performance Hall.
Val Caniparoli’s Lambarena is an upbeat-energetic feast for the eyes that celebrates two cultures by infusing classical ballet and Bach, with African movements and rhythms.
Glen Tetley was one of the first choreographers to break through the barriers dividing classical from modern dance, embracing the whole spectrum of movement. His piece, Voluntaries, created in 1973, was his first with the dancers on pointe. It enthralls audiences with its athleticism, drama, and intensity.
An exciting addition to the show will be three varied pas de deux, including Sylvia, an exciting bouncy duet, and the beautifully expressive Laila and the Swan, based on a Greek myth featuring a strong male swan and the tender Laila.
