Lauren Anderson shines in 'Nutcracker'
By MOLLY GLENTZER

Quote:
Little girls who have already memorized their Barbie in "The Nutcracker" videos may be surprised that nobody in Houston Ballet's "real" version talks tough or shrinks. And the music is strictly Tchaikovsky -- none of that generic action stuff. But they probably won't be bored.

Zdenek Konvalina a prince of a dancer
By MOLLY GLENTZER

Quote:
Zdenek Konvalina, Houston Ballet's new principal dancer, was relegated to the fifth cast during the company's recent Swan Lake -- even though he'd danced the role of Prince Siegfried numerous times in Europe.

Zdenek Konvalina will dance the role of the Nutcracker Prince in Houston Ballet's first cast of the holiday favorite The Nutcracker.

If it was a test, he apparently passed, since he'll be the first-cast Nutcracker Prince when the marathon holiday production opens Friday.

From the Houston Chronicle:

Need a little holiday spirit?
Houston arts groups have just the ticket

By EVERETT EVANS

No place like home for the holidays?

Not in Houston.

The city's artists and entertainers want to convince you there's no place like the theater, gallery or concert hall for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year's -- and no seasonal experience quite like a holiday play, ballet, recital or exhibition.
