It’s hard to say which is more beautiful: George Balanchine’s Serenade set to Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C,” or that the inspiration for Balanchine’s choreography was ballet students. Something else to ponder: Is Ben Stevenson’s L, choreographed for 11 male dancers to a percussive soundtrack, a tribute to a certain iconic Minnelli, fabulous? Whatever your answer, it’s as powerful as her voice in Cabaret. One last question: How special does it feel to be in the audience for a world premiere? Find out when you see Texas Ballet Theater perform both ballets, followed by the debut of Clann, the latest from company member Carl Coomer. Find yourself enchanted, perhaps a bit breathless and absolutely excited, as classical meets contemporary for Texas Ballet Theater’s Balanchine and Beyond, 8 p.m. Fridayand Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in the City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora St. Tickets are $20 to $65. Visit texasballettheater.org.
