“Fort Worth Traditions: Texas Ballet Theater & The Nutcracker”
Ben Stevenson, Artistic Director of Texas Ballet Theater & Officer of the Order of the British Empire
A native of Portsmouth, England, Ben received his dance training at the Arts Educational School in London. He has performed with the top English Ballets where he was a principal dancer and received numerous awards for his choreography. Ben was also named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.) by Queen Elizabeth II in December 1999. He assumed the artistic directorship of the Texas Ballet Theater in July 2003. Ben choreographed “The Nutcracker” that is performed each year by the Texas Ballet Theater at Bass Hall. According to the Dallas Morning News, “Mr. Stevenson’s Nutcracker takes the magical impossibilities of a Christmas dream and . . . makes them beautifully, tantalizingly real.” Join us to hear how, just like the nutcracker, this holiday tradition came to life here in Fort Worth.
All women are invited to Luncheons & Programs sponsored by United Methodist Women. Reservations are required by noon on Friday, December 1, so we can plan accordingly for meals, seating, and child care. We look forward to seeing you there!
