Aug. 22-23 Angora benefit

From the Nevada Appeal

Sierra Nevada Ballet will present A Celebration of Genius II, Aug. 22-23. They will be donating 30 percent of all ticket sales to help the victims of Lake Tahoe’s devastating Angora fire.

The performance is part of the annual Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, set at Sand Harbor State Park. It features a variety of dance, including ballet, tap and contemporary, performed by international dance stars such as Domingo Rubio, Eugene Petrov and Sam Weber, the “fastest feet in tap.” A Celebration of Genius II includes "The Unicorn, The Gorgon and The Manticore," a ballet with spectacular historic costumes and a humorous, timeless story. Audiences will also enjoy "Percussivlund," a fast-paced, original choreographic piece performed to music that uses percussive instruments only.

Ticket prices for A Celebration of Genius II begin at $14 and 30 percent of all sales will go toward helping the Angora fire victims. For tickets, call the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at 800-74-SHOWS or visit For more information about Sierra Nevada Ballet, visit
