I wore It's a fancy venue, but people wear everything from formal to jeans. I think it depends on how close to the stage your seat is..

Program A (Thursday, March 27, 7:30pm. / Friday, March 28, 7:30pm)


Chroma (2006) | First time performed by the Company on the West Coast *

C__horeographed by Wayne McGregor **

The groundbreaking British choreographer’s contemporary ballet is full of sensory surprises: sumptuous movement, a driving score by Joby Talbot with orchestrations of songs by The White Stripes, and a luminous set by minimalist architect John Pawson. The New York Observer wrote: “With new additions to the repertory, Robert Battle’s company looks to the future. Wayne McGregor’s Chroma was a standout.” **__

D-Man in the Waters (Part I) __**(1989, revised 1998) | First time performed by the Company on the West Coast **

Choreographed by Bill T. Jones**

“It is as if Mr. Jones’ movement invention had simply poured out of him.” In this exhilarating work by Kennedy Center Honoree, MacArthur Grant awardee and Tony® Award-winner Bill T. Jones (Fela!, Spring Awakening_), rigorous formalism and musicality embody resilience and triumph over loss. The piece captures the infectious energy, innocence and will to survive of a beleaguered generation, and though it deals with sorrow, it maintains a defiantly celebratory tone. **_

Revelations (1960) *

C__****horeographed by Alvin Ailey **

This season celebrates five decades of Ailey’s timeless masterpiece, Revelations, an American classic called a must-see for all people. Ailey said that one of America’s richest treasures was the cultural heritage of the African American – “sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful.” This enduring classic is a tribute to that heritage and to Ailey’s genius. Using African American religious music –spirituals – this suite fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul.
