Why See American Ballet Theatre: The Leaves Are Fading?
This programme's repertory Includes:
The Leaves Are Fading - choreographed by Antony Tudor
Commissioned by ABT, The Leaves Are Fading is a haunting meditation of youthful romance and time's bittersweet passing, set to Dvoř?k's ravishing score. This was one of Tudor's last ballets, and it remains one of the major works in the choreographer's remarkable canon.
The Moor's Pavane - choreographed by Jose Limon
Considered Lim?n's masterwork, The Moor's Pavane beautifully distills in one act the passion and dramatic arc of Shakespeare's Othello. Performed to a stately Renaissance court dance, this psychological thriller inevitably reaches its heartbreaking climax as the noble Othello succumbs to Iago's treachery.
In the Upper Room - choreographed by Twyla Tharp
Experience an astonishing adrenaline rush with this marathon of exhilarating locomotion and bounding classical rigour. Clad in Norma Kamali costumes, dancers shimmy and sweep through increasingly fiendish choreography.
Opening night: 16 October 2012
