Balanchine’s Jewels: A Brilliant Ballet With No Title

In continuation of their 2023-2024 season, Texas Ballet Theater presents a mixed repertory program at Bass Performance Hall & Wyly Theatre featuring works by George Balanchine, Victor Gsovsky, Rudolf Nureyev, and Val Caniparoli.

“Mixed repertoire evenings are one of the ideal ways to bring world-class ballet to North Texas because they allow us to perform very different works all in one night, so audiences leave with an understanding of all that ballet can be,” said Artistic Director Tim O’Keefe. “And choreographers like Balanchine, like Val Caniparoli, are truly world-class.”

Val Caniparoli and his assistant Maiqui Manosa and Jerri Kumery from the Balanchine Trust are setting Without Borders and Rubies, respectively.

“Val’s creative choreography challenges and strengthens the dancers’ technique. Jerri worked directly with Balanchine for seven years, and she and the Balanchine Trust ensure that we maintain the artistic integrity of a very important work. Her positivity and energy create the correct mood for restaging this upbeat piece,” adds O’Keefe.
