Texas Ballet Theater goes ‘al fresco’ in first full live shows since the pandemic

Among artistic director Ben Stevenson’s works to be performed at Strauss Square in the Dallas Arts District is a premiere.

Aside from a few pop-up appearances, Texas Ballet Theater hasn’t put on a live show since the start of the pandemic last spring. That’s about to change as North Texas’ premiere ballet troupe takes the stage for four hour-long performances this month at Strauss Square.

The program at the outdoor Arts District venue features solos and duets from a host of classic and contemporary works choreographed by artistic director Ben Stevenson, including Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, Three Preludes, Sylvia and The Dying Swan.

The company also will premiere a new Stevenson pas de deux, Afternoon of a Faun, set to the famous Debussy score. Masks required.
