Opposites Attract: Lyric Pieces/Take Five/Grosse Fuge
Opposites Attract features three modern ballets. Lyric Pieces is American choreographer Jessica Lang's first ballet for a major European company, set to music by Norwegian romantic Edvard Grieg. Take Five is director David Bintley's personal tribute to jazz icon Dave Brubeck. Completing the bill, one of Hans van Manen's most famous works, Gr?sse Fuge, is an invigorating and uplifting experience that has lost none of its power over the last 40 years.
