Texas Ballet Theater announces line-up for 2010-11 season

The Texas Ballet Theater this week announced its line-up of productions for the 2010-11 season, all of which will help celebrate its 50th season in North Texas.

The company's Golden Anniversary Season kicks off with the reliable family favorite Cinderella, followed by the traditionally opulent holiday production of The Nutcracker -- the latter paired with a single performance of the Nutcracker's humorous alt-version The Nutty Nutcracker.

A mixed repertory program, featuring artistic director Ben Stevenson's Four Last Songs and a piece by George Balanchine, will mark the season's third production. And making its North Texas premiere will be Don Quixote.

All ballets (except for The Nutty Nutcracker) will be performed both in Fort Worth's Bass Hall and Dallas' Winspear Opera House. Dates of the productions were not released. The ballet has not announced whether it will continue its cost-cutting practice of using recorded music rather than a live orchestra.

Tickets for the shows range from $19-$99. More information: 817-763-0207,
