At heart, Carmen is a sensual story of passion. Putting a daring new spin on one of the best-known and beloved stories of opera repertoire sounds like a tall order. But internationally renowned choreographer Amedeo Amodio is perfectly suited to create a contemporary-infused dance version. Expect fiery dancing filled with feeling and meaning.

No guts, no glory. No risk, no reward. These clichés generally hold true for Cincinnati Ballet’s annual season opener — its modern-leaning, mixed-bag New Works showcase — but they seem more apt than usual. This year’s Kaplan New Works Series, which opened on Thursday night at the Ballet’s own intimate Mickey Jarson Kaplan Studio, delivers on its titular promise — four of the five new works were world premier.

Devon Carney is tired, but somehow he doesn't look the part. Cincinnati Ballet's associate artistic director has been putting in roughly 16-hour days recently. All these efforts go toward the company's upcoming production — ironically, 'The Sleeping Beauty.' The four performances this weekend mark Cincinnati Ballet's return to Music Hall.

The charge to local arts leaders and CityBeat writers was simple yet also complex and difficult: What is the one thing you would change or add to the local arts scene to make it better? Well, maybe it wasn't worded quite so bluntly, but that was the point. There are plenty of exciting things happening locally in the arts; what should be next?

I'm always sad to see summer go, but fall is around the corner and that means dance and so much more returns to local stages. Once again, Cincinnati Ballet kicks off the season with its ever-evolving 'New Works' production featuring, well, new works from local, national and international choreographers. Cin City Burlesque, Performance and Time Arts Series and Contemporary Dance Theater also have new offerings.

A bathtub, a bed, lots of heavy leather suitcases — not necessarily props you expect to see onstage for a ballet, let alone for a ballet set to the high funereal seriousness of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's 'Requiem.' But that's just some of what audiences will experience at Adam Hougland's world premiere ballet, 'Mozart's Requiem,' Friday and Saturday at the Aronoff Center.
