The Great White Way is synonymous with incredible dancing and NBT is proud to close its 2017-18 Season with two unforgettable pieces from Broadway and a World Premiere specially commissioned for NBT. The evening begins with Christopher Wheeldon’s Carousel (A Dance), a romantic, breathtaking distillation of the 1945 Richard Rodgers musical, which has become a sensation throughout the dance world since its debut with New York City Ballet on Rodgers’ Centennial. Wheeldon went on to win a Tony Award® for his choreography in An American in Paris after Carousel propelled him into the spotlight as the next great American ballet master.
Also on the program are two of the legendary George Balanchine’s beloved works. Balanchine’s explosive “Tarantella showcases two pyrotechnical dancers in an ever growing profusion of steps!” And, there’s the return of NBT’s critically acclaimed performance of Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, from the Rodgers & Hart Broadway musical comedy On Your Toes. This boisterous tale of jealously, forbidden love and the mob wowed audiences in 2015 and NBT is thrilled to share this crowd-pleaser with Las Vegas once again.
The program will also feature a bold new work by distinguished choreographer, Matthew Neenan specially commissioned for Nevada Ballet Theatre. This World Premiere will be an exhilarating way to end a season filled with more, a season elevated to new heights.
There’s no better way to experience Broadway’s best plus a World Premiere!
