Fort Worth — The big news for Texas Ballet Theater's 2014-15 season is that live music accompaniment from the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra happens for two ballets: Sleeping Beauty and The Merry Widow. That's one more than in the current season, which still has Swan Lake, featuring the FWSO. This is the first time since the 2009-10 season that TBT will have had live music, which was a budgetary cut.

The season was officially announced at an event in Sundance Square on April 29, where Fort Worth mayor Betsy Price declared Dance Day.

Other exciting news for the new season: A world premiere from British choreographer Jonathan Watkins, as well as a work from one of the most acclaimed international dancemakers, Czech choreographer Jiri Kylian, formerly of Nederlands Dans Theater.

Kylian’s Petite Mort (1991) is on the program at Dallas City Performance Hall (April 2015) and Bass Performance Hall (May 2015); and Watkins’ as-yet-untitled premiere will be only on the Bass Hall concerts. Both of those programs will also feature George Balanchine’s Rubies. Rounding out the Dallas program will be Ben Stevenson’s Five Poems, set to music by Richard Wagner and featuring scenery designed by Stevenson’s former student, the actress Jane Seymour.
