Classic Arts News   New Swan Lake Among Highlights of Cincinnati Ballet's 2005-06 Season
 
Cincinnati Ballet's 2005-06 season will include a new Swan Lake, choreographed by artistic director Victoria Morgan.

Morgan's full-length Midsummer Night's Dream is also on the schedule, kicking off the company's season in September.

In November, the company presents its New Works Festival, featuring seven short ballets by such choreographers as Luca Veggetti.

The Nutcracker takes the stage in December, followed by Swan Lake in February.

The Come Together Festival, in late March, features two Cincinnati premieres. Val Caniparoli's Lamberana is set to a mixture of Bach and African songs (and involves coaching from Tutsi dancers); for George Balanchine's Stars and Stripes the company will collaborate with Columbus's BalletMet.

May brings a program that includes Stanton Welch's Fingerprints, Lynne Taylor-Corbett's Lost and Found, and Balanchine's Who Cares?.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the company will present fewer performances of the Come Together Festival and the May program in order to reduce its budget. The New Works Festival will take place at the Kaplan Performance Studio at the company's headquarters, saving the rental cost of the more-expensive Aronoff Center.
