Description

Come Fly Away, which premiered at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta in 2009 and opened on Broadway the following year, is the next and most elaborate chapter in one of the most fruitful collaborations in contemporary dance. Tharp’s creative relationship with the music of Sinatra began in 1976 with the premiere of Once More Frank, a duet created for the American Ballet Theatre, and performed by Tharp and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The collaboration continued with Nine Sinatra Songs, Tharp’s acclaimed piece for 14 dancers, which had its world premiere with Twyla Tharp Dance in 1982, and was followed by Sinatra Suite, a duet featuring Baryshnikov and Elaine Kudo, which had its world premiere in 1984 with American Ballet Theatre at the Kennedy Center. Sinatra requested that Sinatra Suite be performed when he received his Kennedy Center Honors Award, citing it as one of the purest expressions of his body of work.
