Lords of Light
There are ambitious ballets, and then there is Ballet Austin's Light/The Holocaust and Humanity Project. This epic work in five sections begins at the dawn of time, diagnoses decades of exploitation, bigotry, and internment, and finally suggests hope for the triumph of the human spirit. A passionate plea for human rights, it includes music by postmodern minimalists such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass.
Who should go: Those who appreciate ballet productions that stray from tradition. The New York Times ;praised the company for "departing from balletic convention." That's no surprise: This is a company from the city of Austin, after all.
