Ballet Arizona - Play at Joyce Theater
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
The company makes its Joyce debut with Play "a masterful ballet" by Ib Andersen, "a deeply gifted choreographer" (Dance Magazine). Described by Andersen as a "seven-course meal," Play is an evening length work composed of seven ballets set to the rich music of Mozart, Schubert, Britten, and Stravinsky. With its style and mood changing from passionate to playful, from evocative to elegant, the piece virtually plays with "constant changes of tone and musical attentiveness" to reveal "remarkably skilled dance-making."
