A playful and romantic duet, set to beloved classic songs sung by the incomparable Tony Bennett. Choreographed by longtime ABT collaborator Jessica Lang, Let Me Sing Forevermore seamlessly blends jazz and ballet to create the perfect showcase for ABT’s most spirited and versatile dancers.
A groundbreaking work first presented in 1973, Twyla Tharp’s Deuce Coupe contrasts classical vocabulary with playful sounds of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Featuring music by The Beach Boys, Deuce Coupe juxtaposes the ballet vocabulary that has evolved more than 300 years with another movement vocabulary that is loosely based on contemporary social dances.
