A treat for dance lovers
8 October 2012 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

New York City Ballet dancers Ellen Bar and Sean Suozzi have created a very entertaining take on this classic mid-century Jerome Robbins ballet. Its musical inflection and choreography will remind you of "West Side Story" - and for good reason. The ballet premiered in 1958 in Spoleto, Italy. (This was the same year that the iconic musical premiered on Broadway.)

As someone whose aesthetic was majorly influenced by the glory years of City Ballet, when George Balanchine and Robbins were at the helm, seeing this one hour film staged all over New York City, in unusual locations, was a kick. You will even see the McCarren Park Pool in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in all its decrepitude and before its recent reopening.
