  • 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.

  • Paul Taylor Dance Company
    Newsweek's Laura Shapiro once offered a succinct history of American modern dance: "In the beginning there was Martha Graham, who changed the face of an art form and discovered a new world. Then there was Merce Cunningham, who stripped away the externals and showed us the heart of movement. And then there was Paul Taylor, who let the sun shine in." The last living member of this homegrown pantheon, Taylor has not finished innovating yet, adding new pieces each year to a prolific catalog of 140 dances. Romantic, iconoclastic, dauntingly athletic, and sometimes hilarious, his works heft weighty topics such as war, spirituality, sexuality, and mortality onto their shoulders, then alchemize them into weighty dances that seem to exist for the sheer pleasure of their beauty. Among his countless accolades, the champion choreographer has received a Kennedy Center Honor, the National Medal of Arts, and the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship ?genius award.? Such a rich and prolific body of work makes it easy for the Paul Taylor Dance Company to harvest a unique program for each performance, which they have done in 520 cities throughout 62 countries.

  • The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
    An artist, Distinguished Concerts International New York's website says, is "an individual who continually seeks to improve, to grow, and aspires to perform at a higher level." The people behind this definition are DCINY co-founders Iris Derke and Jonathan Griffith, and it's a definition their musicians fulfill. To do so, they collaborate and express themselves while both performing famed Mozart compositions and leading educational events.

  • Vicky Simegiatos Dance Company's "The Nutcracker"
    Former students of Vicky Simegiatos Dance Company have gone on to perform with some of the city's finest dance companies?a trait they have in common with the company's founder and namesake. Discovered by the directors of American Ballet Theatre during a trip to Greece, Simegiatos traveled to the United States to join the company, eventually leaving the professional ballet world behind to raise a family in Brooklyn. But the dancing bug never really left her. In the early '70s she founded what is today named the Vicky Simegiatos Performance Arts Center to teach young twirlers throughout the neighborhood Balachine-technique ballet, Greek dancing, and how to crack walnuts with their toe muscles.
