An Evening of Twyla Tharp
Experience a choreographic power couple when PBT presents two works by Tony and Emmy award-winning choreographer Twyla Tharp. Described by Tharp as “fierce, driving and relentless,” In the Upper Room melds ballet and modern dance in a powerful tour de force driven by Philip Glass’s rhythmic score. In Nine Sinatra Songs, Tharp blends ballet and ballroom movement, elevating the glamour and finesse of social dancing to a dance theatre quality. Buy Tickets. Or, Click here to subscribe today.
