Tulsa Ballet’s internationally trained dancers leap and twirl through a mix of modern, fresh choreography and classical favorites atop Chapman Music Hall’s grand stage. In Nine Sinatra Songs, duos take a spin on the dance floor, letting the crooner’s buoyant renditions of the electric slide guide their dips. After the throwback to classic musical fare, the performance advances to modern choreography by William Forsythe and Jiří Kylián, whom the ballet calls “one of the world’s top five living choreographers.” A classic holiday tale, The Nutcracker fills the stage with the pitter patter of slippered feet as 120 local children and students join pros to recreate the famed battle of the Mouse King against the Nutcracker. The season concludes with Romeo & Juliet, a specially commissioned dance brimming with swashbuckling scenes by famed fight director J. Steven White, as well as passionate duets mourning the tragic mistiming of Tybalt’s surprise party. Celebrated principals include Soo Youn Cho, whose international training won prizes in Switzerland, Bulgaria, Berlin, and Korea, and Ma Cong, an up-and-coming choreographer.
