Brave New Ballet... This Afternoon!

The Nevada Ballet Theater is poised to unveil its latest creation this weekend with dances inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's tale the Song of the Nightingale with choreography by local artist Gail Gilbert; a new contemporary piece by Wideman/ Davis Dance Company Artistic Director Thaddeus Davis; and ending the evening with Cyclical Night, a tango-inspired piece by Nevada Ballet Theatre‚Äôs own Artistic Director James Canfield set to the music of Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla.

This is a show not to be missed and goodness knows I will be there to witness what James Canfield has created with the music of my parents homeland of Argentina. With two performances this weekend you have no excuse not to make it out and support one of Las Vegas's great cultural institutions. See you at the ballet!

Brave New World will take place this coming weekend at the Artemis Ham Concert Hall on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas...
