Texas Ballet Theater and artistic director Ben Stevenson have signed a five-year contract extension through 2011, the company announced.

Stevenson, a leading choreographer and the longtime artistic director of Houston Ballet, joined Texas Ballet Theater (formerly known as Fort Worth Dallas Ballet) in 2003.

"His level of artistic excellence is simply unparalleled. He stands alone in his ability to build a world-class company, to attract and develop the most promising young talent, and to choreograph and present ballet in a manner that delights and inspires audiences as never before."

The company also announced that its 2006-07 season would include Stevenson's versions of The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, and Alice in Wonderland. Mixed programs will include a new work by assistant director Tim O'Keefe, set to music by Scott Joplin, and a new work by Stevenson set to Mozart's Requiem.
