In Conversation With Texas Ballet Theater’s Sugar Plum Fairy
This article about Texas Ballet Theater’s The Nutcracker features an interview with Alexandra Farber, a principal dancer with the company.

She explains that she’s already begun creating choreography as a dancer, but notes that the industry is still heavily dominated by male choreographers.
