Interesting to stage in 1950s Italy, rather than the original time period. Enjoyed the flow in an out, with the partitions in the back of the stage and dancing in the foreground. One of the highlights, other than the music, were the fight scenes...continued
Approximate run time is two hours including one intermission.
About the Ticket Supplier: The Joffrey Ballet
Robert Joffrey and Gerald Arpino’s uniquely American vision of dance first took form in 1956. The original company consisted of six dynamic and highly individual dancers. While Robert Joffrey stayed in New York to teach ballet classes and earn money to pay the dancers’ salaries, Gerald Arpino led the troupe across America’s heartland, in a station wagon that pulled a U-Haul trailer. Their repertoire of original ballets by Robert Joffrey set them apart from other small touring companies, who often performed scaled-down versions of the classics. From the beginning, Joffrey and Arpino wanted a company that came out of their roots, out of America.
