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.

<B>Nevada Ballet Theatre tries something different in finale</B><BR>By JULIA OSBORNE for The Las Vegas Review-Journal<P><BR>In what is a daring move for an arts organization relying on ticket subscriptions and sales for support, the Nevada Ballet Theatre is presenting four contemporary dances in its season finale, "Double Exposure." <P>There are no tutus to remember and few classic poses to draw murmurs of appreciation, no "happily-ever-after" popular works. Nonetheless, the program is intriguing, with an especially avant-garde final dance choreographed to showcase the individual talents of each member of the troupe. <P>The evening opened with "Allegro Brillante," with choreography by George Ballanchine. Ballanchine, who died in 1983, founded the New York City Ballet. His work owes much to the classics, but it is emphatically 20th century dance. <P><A HREF="http://www.lvrj.com/lvrj_home/2002/May-18-Sat-2002/news/18777397.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>

Ballet pumps up Rodgers tribute
By JULIA OSBORNE for The Las Vegas Review-Journal

Note to Nevada Ballet Theatre: the next time you want to bring down the house, leave those classical moves at the door and glide, slide, run and strut. Add some hip-hop steps and a bit of break dancing, move to in-your-face music -- and the result will be one of the loudest and longest standing ovations you have ever received.

At least that was the case at Artemus Ham Hall at the University of Nevada Las Vegas on Saturday, when the dancers traveled across the courtyard from their regular home at the Judy Bayley Theatre for the annual show in the larger venue. Artistic director Bruce Steivel put together a program of classic and contemporary dances that put the bigger stage to good use.

Nevada Ballet Theatre revisits 'Peter Pan'
By JULIA OSBORNE for THE LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Granted, no one in the audience at the Judy Bayley Theatre truly thought that Peter Pan, Wendy, John or Michael could fly. Yet at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas last weekend, the Nevada Ballet Theatre presented its well-established version of "Peter Pan" in such a bright style that those in attendance could happily suspend disbelief for this classic, feel-good story.

Flying was fine and so was the rest of the show. This is the third time it was on the ballet's schedule in four years, and it's improved with age.

On Friday, the talented and athletic Kyu Dong Kwak reprised the title role, with a lovely but decidedly arrogant Tinkerbell, portrayed on Friday by Heather Haar. Kwak's leaps and glides were smooth and his man-as-little-boy characterization endearing.
