Metropolitan Classical Ballet
Founded in 1997, Metropolitan Classical Ballet is regarded as one of the most successful ballet companies in Texas. Artistic Directors Paul Mejia and Alexander Vetrov are well-recognized names in ballet. Mr. Mejia, a former principal dancer with the New York City Ballet who danced principal roles in many Balanchine ballets, carries on Balanchine's style and artistic vision through his acclaimed choreography. Alexander Vetrov, former leading male principal dancer with the prestigious Bolshoi, has a strong working knowledge of Russian Classical techniques and principles that is reflected in his choreography. He has the distinction of being the recipient of the Honored People's Artist of Russia, the highest honor given by the Russian President. He still maintains close connections with the Bolshoi today. Company dancers are valued for their superior technique and strong artistic personalities. Since 1999, the Company has performed at the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth. It reaches over 30,000 individuals each season. The Company's repertory has an emphasis on simplicity, style and pure classical tradition, elements that make the Company uniquely classic.
