NY Export: Opus Jazz
If you ask me, the hottest thing happening in ballet right now is a dance/film project by two New York City Ballet Dancers called NY Export: Opus Jazz.
Opus Jazz is an adaptation of a ballet from the 1950’s by Jerome Robbins. NCYB dancers, Ellen Bar and Sean Suozzi had the idea of re-making Robbins' work back in 2007. After months of editing and years of planning and fundraising, the film has finally come to fruition. Each movement of the ballet is filmed in a different part of the city and danced exclusively by NYCB members. Check out the trailer here:
