Some may remember the early predecessor the reality TV crazy, in which celebrities and public figures would be surprised by family members and old friends as the host went through a biography of their life.

Young Soon Hue's This is Your Life combines humor, acting and a dose of pop culture to tell the story of its characters through modern ballet and tango. The piece was created for the company in the spring of 2008.

Rounding out the program will be Nacho Duato's Por Vos Muero and Sir Kenneth MacMillan's Elite Syncopation.

The Tulsa Ballet will perform Monday _ Wednesday at 7:30 PM, Thursday _ Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 2 PM. Tickets, priced at $19-$39, are available by calling JoyceCharge at 212-242-0800 or online at www.Joyce.org.
