The New York Times has hailed this program as a "sheer utter triumph". Now the energy, creativity and classical perfection of the Dance Theater of Harlem has been captured in dazzling performances of four signature pieces.
The American classic Fall River Legend Choreographed by Agnes de Mille, tells the notorious story of Lizzie Borden. Troy Game by Robert North is a dynamic satire of the machismo attitudes inherent in sports. The Beloved a ballet for two dancers by Lester Horton, confronts the themes of violence and fanaticism. John Henry choreographed by Arthur Mitchell is a celebration of the strength of the human will.
