“Bolero is climactic, jaw-dropping and so much fun to watch.” – Deseret News
NBT’s midwinter program features two engaging ballets plus a World Premiere by Krista Baker. Nicolo Fonte’s Bolero, set to the iconic score from Ravel, is filled with pulsating movement and scintillating emotion. Entangled in the hypnotic rhythm of the music, dancers are swept up in a journey toward not just human interaction, but true connection. George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments, while rooted in classical ballet, is a manifestation of modern movement exploding on stage in a vibrant study of the human psyche.
