As reported in the LA Times, the Music Center of Los Angeles’ 2016-17 dance season is set to feature boundary-pushing performances with a focus on female artists.

The line-up will include the West Coast premiere of Scottish Ballet’s A Streetcar Named Desire, adapted from Tennessee Williams’ famous play. The production is a collaboration between choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and director Nancy Meckler.

New York City principal ballerina Tiler Peck (On the Town) will reportedly curate the Center’s BalletNow event, comprising three nights of performances featuring principal dancers from all over the world. The event is set to feature choreography by Broadway favorites Christopher Wheeldon, Justin Peck and Jerome Robbins.

Another highlight includes the debut of Jessica Lang Dance, with the company set to perform two new works.
