Broadway legend Ann Reinking joins us this season to stage a Bob Fosse medley just for Ballet Nebraska. Fosse, a nine-time Tony Award® winner, created iconic choreography that set new standards. Reinking, also a Tony® winner, is a principal authority on his style and work. It’s part of the brilliant mix you’ll see in Momentum, of which audiences say:

~ “A wonderful and varied program with something for everyone!”
~ “This is a perfect show for those who love dance and those who think they don’t.”
~ “We can’t wait for the next show! I was so impressed!

Shakespeare’s best-loved romantic comedy comes to life in this enchanting ballet, created by former Royal Danish Ballet dancer Oskar Antunez. The ballet draws movement inspiration from Felix Mendelssohn’s captivating musical score while closely following William Shakespeare’s lively story: a contest of wills between the King and Queen of the Fairies, complicated by two mismatched pairs of human lovers and a band of amateur actors.
