Tulsa Ballet Offers "From Ballet to Broadway"

Aired on Thursday, May 9th.

This weekend, from May 9th through the 12th, Tulsa Ballet will present a season-closing Signature Series program titled "From Ballet to Broadway." It's a line-up of three works that, each and all, deeply blend classical ballet with Broadway-style dance and movement. These works include two American "classics" as well as a very exciting brand-new work: "Fancy Free" by Jerome Robbins, "Who Cares?" by George Balanchine, and "Remember Our Song" by Andy Blankenbuehler (who is the three-time Tony Award-winning choreographer of Broadway's "Hamilton"). Our guest on ST is Marcello Angelini, Tulsa Ballet's artistic director.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
