  • Moscow Ballet
    Nearly a century ago, the Hippodrome opened as a combination movie palace and vaudeville theater, spending more than 70 years hosting big names such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Following a double-decade period of slow business and bad hairstyles, the Hippodrome closed down in 1990. Now, however, after an exhaustive restoration project that reanimated the theater’s chandelier-lit arches, the mural above the proscenium stage, and the grand-theater boxes that hearken back to opera’s heyday, the Hippodrome reopens to the delight of Baltimore’s cultural landscape.

  • Royce Hall
    When artistic director Jean Grand-Maître joined the Alberta Ballet in 2002, he effectively brought a spotlight back to the already storied institution—Canada's second largest ballet company. His idea: "portrait ballets," intimate glimpses inside the canons of artists including Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan, and Elton John. By choreographing dances specifically for these artists' seminal tracks, Grand-Maître breathes new life into them and adds a new dimension of understanding to works that many already believe they know. And for his ingenuity, Grand-Maître was rewarded, earning the role of Director of Choreography for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and a coffee mug that says "World's Greatest Artistic Director."
