Designers of the Dance

 

Venture into the studio with legendary dancers and choreographers in DESIGNERS OF THE DANCE. The program takes viewers behind the scenes to learn about the work and process that go into making a ballet great, and features stunning performances of five unique dance pieces – Alexei Ratmansky’s retake of The Nutcracker, Leonid Lavrovsky’s ground-breaking Romeo & Juliet, Lar Lubovitch’s powerful Othello, Alastair Marriott’s hauntingly beautiful Liederand Yuri Possikhov’s Diving Into the Lilacs. With stops at the American Ballet Theatre, the Bolshoi Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet and the Royal Ballet, DESIGNERS OF THE DANCE reveals the inspiration behind the creation of each work, and how the choreographers and dancers work together to bring these ballets to life.
