Crystals at CityCenter Showcases Flair and Artistry of Nevada Ballet Theatre with Limited-Time Exhibit
Jewels Costume Display and Surprise ‘4×8’ Performances in March and April

WHAT: Luxury retail and dining destination Crystals at CityCenter honors Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT) with a limited-time exhibit of beautiful costumes from its upcoming presentation of George Balanchine’s Jewels, set to premiere in October 2012. A unique three-act ballet based on Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds, Jewels will mark NBT’s inaugural 2012-2013 Season in its new performance home, The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.

Named after special four-foot by eight-foot flooring pieces that allow dancers to execute their movements on a surface that keeps them from being injured, NBT created a series of dances that showcase many styles of choreography. This series of dances, or ‘4×8’, range from the most classical to the very contemporary, reflecting NBT’s versatile repertoire as performed by a dynamic group of professional dancers.

WHO: Under the artistic direction of James Canfield, Nevada Ballet Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and the largest professional ballet company and dance academy in the state. Committed to the highest artistic standards, this classically-based company is at home in an eclectic repertory, moving easily from classics to high-energy contemporary ballets.

WHEN:  Jewels costumes on display now through April 5

‘4×8’ performances: Thursday, March 8 intermittently 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.; Saturday, April 7 intermittently 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
