A pleasant surprise!
Zehra T. Guvendiren | Woodstock, MD | 11/05/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this product because I thought it would show a Jazz-Ballet show performed by the New York Ballet Company. To my pleasant surprise, it was almost nothing of the sort. Instead, it chronicled the creative process of the entire show, from concept to execution, and culminated in the final performance of a few, select pieces on opening night.

The documentary investigated the intricacies of the merging of two different worlds: the New Orleans Jazz scene with Classical Ballet choreography. It showed the story from both viewpoints... the attempts of each to understand the other and to try to communicate effectively in a common language, which does not yet exist. Mutual respect and admiration underlined each scene. Wonderful!"
