Nine Sinatra Songs - Three Modern Masterworks


World Premiere The program opens with a world premiere by Jennifer Archibald, Resident Choreographer of Cincinnati Ballet. A graduate of The Alvin Ailey School, her work is known for its fierce and athletic movement, as audiences witnessed when she presented her world premiere work, Myoho at Ballet West’s Choreographic Festival in 2018. Choreography: Jennifer Archibald Music: TBD Almost Tango Set in a crowded dance hall, Almost Tango presents the rich cultural roots and passionate style of the Argentinian dance. Fonte is a master of creating relationships on stage that tell deeply emotional stories, “he is a storyteller first, and a brilliant choreographer second,” said the Deseret News. As with his Carmina Burana, Rite of Spring, or Fox on the Doorstep, Almost Tango speaks to the soul with both joy and heartache. Choreography: Nicolo Fonte Music: Laurie Anderson, Karl Jenkins, and Thomas Oboe Lee   Nine Sinatra Songs One of Twyla Tharp’s most popular works, Nine Sinatra Songs presents glamorous portraits of seven couples that trace the arc of romantic relationships. The dancers swing, swirl, tango, and cha-cha through a glittering ballroom, all while being serenaded by the “Chairman of the Board.” Choreography: Twyla Tharp Music: Frank Sinatra
