ST. LOUIS – Here in St. Louis, Saint Louis Ballet's Gen Horiuchi has Valentine's Day on his mind. He's the ballet's artistic director, and he's busy preparing for the next show, Love is in the Air, a Valentine's weekend special at the Touhill.
But in 1998, the Olympics were all he could think about. Horiuchi choreographed the ballet part of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Nagano.
"We went over many, many times and then of course they head of the committee said no that's not possible or that's too expensive so yeah we revised it quite a few times," he said.
