UNLV Dance provides its very first concert of the year, resuming the “In Orchestra” series, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20, and at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21 in Artemus Ham Concert Hall.
UNLV Dance groups with the UNLV Chamber orchestra, under the direction of Taras Krysa, to present Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. Instead of simply rebuild the original ballet, the objective of the work is to gather a group of choreographers and inform the conventional story though the lens of various dance styles and categories, including ballet, modern-day dance, jazz, modern dance, hip hop, and folk dance. “In Orchestra 3” also will bring members of the UNLV Theatre into the mix by reciting some of Shakespeare’s initial text throughout the piece.
