Hey, this is the first time that I've noticed another ballet company performing a Trocks piece. It's not one I've seen, "Yes, Virginia, another Piano Ballet", but the Trocks website confirms that it is a Robbins spoof. Nevada Ballet Theatre's 'Mozart to Joplin' an evening of fun
By JULIA OSBORNE for The Las Vegas Review Journal
Ballet need not be fussy and formal all the time, as the Nevada Ballet Theatre proved Thursday evening with "Mozart to Joplin." The three one-act dances were, separately, pretty, jazzy and just plain fun.
The need for some judicious editing and the occasional misstep were minor negatives in this enjoyable evening.
The evening's ballets were: "Mozart"; "Yes, Virginia, another Piano Ballet"; and "Joplin." In its United States premiere, Mozart was choreographed by Pennsylvanian Roy Tobias and is danced to the classical composer's work. Its creator is a former principal with the New York City Ballet and has choreographed several other original ballets. click for more
