The Deal

Cleopatra

Ruthless politician, intelligent ruler, besotted lover, grieving woman, skilled seductress, early eyeliner advocate: Cleopatra, Egypt’s last Queen, was many things. Above all, however, she was—and remains—enthralling. As testament to that, Ballet Nebraska’s artistic director, Erika Overtuff, has created an entire work devoted to the Queen’s life, and the choreographic biography is every bit as epic as one of the ballet’s grand jetes. The production peers into the war room as two empires clash, the bedroom as the Queen’s heart swoons for Mark Antony, and the inner workings of Cleopatra’s mind as she moves ever closer to her tragic end. As Overturff puts it, “Cleopatra is a fascinating historical figure… Her story is both an epic clash of empires and a deeply personal drama—an ideal showcase for ballet’s ability to combine visual spectacle with intimate emotion.”

Ballet Nebraska

As the only professional dance company of its kind in the region, Ballet Nebraska takes its mission to entertain and educate seriously. The company performs seasons of classic works and new favorites, pirouetting through The Nutcracker and mixed-repertory programs at area theaters and on tour. But the ballet's greatest contribution to the community might be its education and outreach programs. The artists frequently perform at charity benefits, stage productions for students, and hold workshops on storytelling through movement at local libraries, where silent storytelling is a must.
