Preludes and Fugues

Nine Sinatra Songs

Twyla Tharp, one of the century’s most treasured artists, celebrates fifty years of dance making with an evening of new work, which premiered in 2015. The double bill begins with with Preludes and Fugues, set to J.S. Bach’s “Well-Tempered Clavier.” The dance radiates with Tharp’s generous spirit, humanity, and rigor as dancers move through duets, trios, and ensembles. Closing the program is Tharp’s beloved Nine Sinatra Songs from 1982 with music by Frank Sinatra and glittering costumes by Oscar de la Renta. The work presents a glamorous portrait of seven couples that traces the arc of romantic relationships. The dancers swing, swirl, tango and cha-cha through a ballroom, displaying Tharp’s mastery of technique and imagination. In each work, Tharp turns her decades of experience—dances for Hollywood films, television, and the Broadway stage, ballets, modern dances—into living proof that time is her partner as she continues to deepen and expand her singular imagination..
