dc.descriptionAccompanying press release states: "LUBBOCK, Feb. 23--Texas Tech's Artist Course Series will bring Canada's widely-acclaimed Royal Winnipeg Ballet to Lubbock Friday (March 3) for a performance at 8:15 p.m. in Lubbock Municipal Auditorium. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Monday (March 1) at Tech Union box office. Admission will be $2.50 for adults and $1.50 for students in schools other than Tech. Tickets are free to Tech students upon presentation of ID cards. The 25-member company, directed by Canadian-born Arnold Spohr, has won plaudits throughout America and in Europe for its sparkling repertoire of original dances, ranging from the classical to the contemporary. Opening selection will be "Aimez Vous Bach?" which won the gold Star for the company's official choreographer, Brian Macdonald, at the Paris Internatiional Festival. Performed in simple rehearsal clothes to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, the ballet has been described as "an intriguing development of the classical technique." In a different vein, "Les Whoops-De-Doo," an ingenious adaptation of classical ballet to the Western myth, reveals Macdonald's flair for antic comedy in such segments as "Vision at the O.K. Corral," "Through the Swinging Doors," and "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch." Led by prima ballerina Christine Hennessy, principal dancers in featured roles will include Leo Ahonen, famous for his soaring leaps; Richard Rutherford, noted for his versatility; and the talented Sheila Mackinnon, Bill Martin-Viscount, James Clauser and Donna Frances. Clauser, also a composer and choreographer, serves as ballet master and assistant to the director as well as a leading dancer. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet has several "firsts" to its credit. Now in its 27th season, it is Canada's oldest ballet troupe. It also became the first "royal" company in the British Commonwealth when it was granted the distinguished honor by Queen Elizabeth, receiving the first royal charter granted by the young monarch in 1953."en_US
