Ballet West kicks off the season September 27th with Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream:

Ballet West Opens Its 2002-2003 Season With Shakespearean Comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream

SALT LAKE CITY - Love and mischief take the stage as Ballet opens its 2002-2003 season with George Balanchine's Shakespearean comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, September 27 - October 5. This tale of magic and misadventure combines the choreography of George Balanchine with the stirring score by Felix Mendelssohn to tell the story of crossed loves, chaotic misunderstandings, forest chases and magic spells woven together by the infamous sprite, Puck.

Viktorija's Secret: Dance Discipline
BY CELIA R. BAKER for THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

There is no such thing as an undisciplined professional ballerina. In an art form that demands strength, skill, grace and physical perfection, the unmotivated need not apply.

Yet, even when measured against the American ballet world's long ruler, Viktorija Jansone's dedication to her art is exceptional. Ballet West's newest soloist attributes her work ethic to the old-world training she received in her native Latvia.

As a young child, Jansone entered a state-sponsored music school in the Latvian capital of Riga, where she studied violin along with school subjects.

Ballet West Dancers' Season to Be Cut Short

BY CELIA R. BAKER
THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

Dancers at Ballet West were knocked off balance Monday by news that their season contract will be reduced from 38 to 37 weeks. The one-week layoff is being blamed on decreased donations, losses on investments and declining receipts from Salt Lake County's Zoo, Arts and Parks (ZAP) tax. more

Ballet West: An Evening of Ballets
by Karen Webb

“Beyond Balanchine”, “Balanchine and then some”, and “Balanchine to the max” were a few ways William Forsythe's work was described when Ballet West acquired the choreographer's Artifact II a season ago. His regisseur for that work, Doug Becker, explained all about the new dance language 'Billy' was developing for his body of work.

This time out, the Forsythe saga continues with a smaller work, one developed for the Paris Opera Ballet in about 1978, when Forsythe was climbing the learning curve of creating this new language. The curiously-named In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated joins reprises Afternoon of a Faun, the company's first Jerome Robbins acquisition, and Birgit Cullberg's Miss Julie, whose multiple casts, new ones all, will wring all the richness that can be wrung from Strindberg's look at morals and the roles we play in life. The entire bill, the only repertory evening the company planned for the season, opened at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City on November 1.

Tri-Arts Series Offers a Sip of Ballet, Opera and Symphony

CELIA R. BAKER, SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

For someone who just wants a taste of high culture, buying a subscription to the opera, symphony or ballet can be like drinking from a fire hose -- too much of a good thing, and all one flavor.

Ballet West Gets 'Rosalinda' Right

BY KAREN ANNE WEBB
SPECIAL TO THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

When it comes to the burlesque genre of comedy, there is a narrow zone at which the performer must aim. Too little conviction and mannerisms not sufficiently exaggerated make it just not funny; too much mugging, and the audience will perceive the performance as over the top. <a href=http://www.sltrib.com/2003/feb/02092003/utah/27916.asp target=_blank>more</a>
