Storyline

Mikhail Baryshnikov and members of the American Ballet Theatre perform three original dances choreographed by Twyla Tharp: "The Little Ballet", "Sinatra Suite" and "Push Comes To Shove". "The Little Ballet" is a sweet and charming modern take on the traditional 19th century ballet. In "Sinatra Suite", Mikhail Baryshnikov and Elaine Kudo fall in and out of love to the music of Frank Sinatra. And finally, the comical and frenetic "Push Comes to Shove" features Mikhail Baryshnikov, Elaine Kudo, Susan Jaffe and the rest of the ensemble in a modernist homage to classical ballet.
