Texas Ballet Theater presents Balanchine and Beyond, featuring pieces by father of American ballet George Balanchine, TBT artistic director Ben Stevenson and a world premiere by company member Carl Coomer. Set to Tchaikovsky's gorgeous Serenade for Strings, which he called "his favorite child," Balanchine's Serenade is "a dance in the moonlight," exemplifying beauty and innocence. A tour de force for the men of TBT, Stevenson's L brings an all-percussion score to life in a joyous expression of gratitude. Coomer's second TBT debut, Clann, follows 2012's Evolving, a mix of contemporary and classical dance with a touch of quirkiness, which The Dallas Morning News called "near flawless." Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "The show is filled with lots of energy and good hearted foolishness and the actors and the majority of the audience really seems to be enjoying themselves ... The show is a light-weight piece of want-to-be-filthy fluff that fortunately doesn’t take itself too seriously. It exists for fun and seasonal laughs and delivers what it sets out to." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.pegasusnews.com/news/2012/nov/26/theater-review-beulaville-baptist-book-nutcracker/"><em>Pegasus News</em></a>
About the Ticket Supplier: MBS ProductionsMBS Productions specializes in "new theater." In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they'll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, "Theatre of Death," which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of "Theatre of Death" to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
