Twyla Tharp | In the Upper Room & Nine Sinatra Songs
Back at City Center after last fall’s triumphant TWYLA NOW presentation, the history-making choreographer Twyla Tharp revisits two iconic works.
Set to a propulsive score by Philip Glass, In the Upper Room is a widely acknowledged masterpiece of artistry and athleticism. Hurtling through a mist-shrouded stage in pointe shoes and sneakers, an all-star cast of performers propel themselves relentlessly toward the piece’s explosive finale.
Nine Sinatra Songs takes its suave, jazzy style from classic Ol’ Blue Eyes standards to conjure love stories of ardent passion and world weariness alike, exemplifying Tharp’s unique ability to showcase the individual personalities and talents of her dancers.
Bringing these two modern masterworks to life will be Jeanette Delgado, Benjamin Freemantle, Jada German, Kaitlyn Gilliland, James Gilmer, Jacquelin Harris, Daisy Jacobson, Lloyd Knight, Julian MacKay, Marzia Memoli, Stephanie Petersen, Reed Tankersley, Cassandra Trenary, Daniel Ulbricht, and Richard Villaverde.
Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased online at NYCityCenter.org, by calling 212.581.1212, or in person at the City Center Box Office.
