The lithe and lovely dancers of Texas Ballet Theater hit the stage for two weekends of six beautiful works. First up? George Balachine’s Apollo, inspired by the Greek patron god of music and poetry, TBT Artistic Director Ben Stevenson’s Bartok, a showcase of neoclassical dance, and a world premiere with choreography from Company member Carl Coomer. As for the second weekend, there’s another world premiere from Company member Peter Zweifel, along with Val Caniparoli’s Lambarena, where African rhythms and the melodies of Bach are infused in a celebration of two cultures, and Stevenson’s Image, based on the tumultuous life of Marilyn Monroe.
