A Cirque du Soleil/Nevada Ballet Theatre Collaboration Ten Years in the Making
Since 2007, Nevada Ballet Theatre and mega-producer Cirque du Soleil have joined forces to produce A Choreographers' Showcase. Each year, ballet dancers, aerialists, acrobats, clowns and musicians meld their artistic talents, creating buzz up and down the strip. These two unlikely partners will celebrate their 10th anniversary October 8, 14 and 15 when this "only in Vegas" style grand pas takes to the Mystère stage at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino. For this 2017 celebration, 15 original works will be created and performed by over 60 artists from both NBT and the seven resident Vegas Cirque shows. nevadaballet.org.
