Nevada Ballet Theatre: Ballet & Broadway

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.

A generation later, it remains one of the best loved stories of all time and a heartwarming fairy tale perfect for the entire family.
