A writeup from Ohio State publication UWeekly.com praises a collaboration of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra and BalletMet for a performance called “Jazz Moves Take 2,” which the writer says “explores all the different ways that jazz in all its various forms and dance can come together.”
A highlight, apparently, is a piece called “Bourbon Street:”
It begins with a funeral dirge set to “St. James Infirmary” where the company marches along as a soloist emotionally expresses the agony of losing a loved one. The piece then moves on to a full company celebration of life set to the exuberant “Bourbon Street Parade.”
Obviously I know nothing at all about ballet, or dance in general. But it sounds interesting.
