Preludes and Fugues Nine Sinatra Songs Twyla Tharp, one of the centurys most treasured artists, celebrates fifty years of dance making with an evening of new work, which premiered in 2015. The double bill begins with Preludes and Fugues, set to J.S. Bachs Well-Tempered Clavier. The dance radiates with Tharps generous spirit, humanity, and rigor as dancers move through duets, trios, and ensembles. Closing the program is Tharps beloved Nine Sinatra Songs from 1982 with music by Frank Sinatra and glittering costumes by Oscar de la Renta. The work presents a glamorous portrait of seven couples that traces the arc of romantic relationships. The dancers swing, swirl, tango and cha-cha through a ballroom, displaying Tharps mastery of technique and imagination. **Students (under 25 yo) & Teachers can purchase discounted tickets.
