BALLET WEST TO REVIVE ANDRE PROKOVSKY'S VESPRI
DURING THE 2006-07 SEASON


NEW YORK -- Ballet West will revive Andre Prokovsky's Vespri during the
2006-07 season with performances to take place on August 17, 18 & 19, 2006 at the
Aspen District Theater in Aspen, Colorado, and on May 25, 26, 30, 31, June 1
& 2, 2006 at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City, Utah. Ballet West
presented the company premiere of Vespri in 1984.

ANDRE PROKOVSKY was born in Paris of Russian parents. After studying ballet
in his native France, he made his debut at the Comedie Francaise and danced
with various French companies before winning the silver medal at the Youth
Dance Festival in Moscow. He continued his successful dancing career as a
principal dancer with the London Festival Ballet and the New York City Ballet, and
he and Galina Samsova became co-directors of the New London Ballet. From
1977 to 1978, Mr. Prokovsky was the Ballet Director of the Rome Opera House.


Since 1978, Mr. Prokovsky has pursued a successful career as a freelance
choreographer. His ballets have been produced by London Festival Ballet,
Northern Ballet Theatre, The Scottish Ballet, Rome Opera, the Australian Ballet, the
Kirov Ballet, the Malmo Opera Ballet, Grand Theatre (Warsaw, Poland), The
Royal Ballet, La Scala (Milan), the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Ballet de
Santiago, Singapore Dance Theatre, the PACT, CAPAB, and NAPAC Ballets in South
Africa, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and in the United States, Ballet West, Pittsburgh
Ballet Theatre, the Cincinnati Ballet, Nevada Ballet Theatre, and the Tulsa
Ballet Theatre.


Mr. Prokovsky has created ten full-length ballets, Anna Karenina and The
Three Musketeers (the Australian Ballet), Dr. Zhivago (CAPAB Ballet), Victoria
(Norwegian National Ballet), La Traviata (London City Ballet), Macbeth (Ballet
de Santiago), The Great Gatsby (Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre), Queen of Spades
(Ballet West), Romeo and Juliet (Royal Ballet of Flanders), and Turandot
(Guangzhou Guangdong Ballet of China). He has also staged his own versions of the
classics, The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake. Mr. Prokovsky
also choreographed the ballet in the much-acclaimed Paris Opera production of
Robert a Diable and the Washington Opera' The Tsar's Bride.


Mr. Prokovsky's wide choreographic range -- from intimate chamber works to
full-length ballets -- makes him one of the most versatile choreographers on
the international ballet scene.
