Quote:
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Basil Thompson, an internationally acclaimed ballet master on sabbatical from the University of Iowa, died Tuesday in Lynchburg, Va., of sudden cardiac arrest. He was 67.

Thompson, trained by the Sadlers Wells Ballet School in London, was a former soloist with the American Ballet Theatre in New York and former artistic director of the Milwaukee Ballet.

He also was a former ballet master of the Chicago-based Joffrey Ballet, and only recently had reconstructed "Petrouchka" for the Joffrey's Nureyev Tribute.
