Tulsa Ballet at Joyce Theaterhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/ballet/welcome-back-tulsa-ballet/743/
Next up was Nacho Duato’s Por Vos Muero(1996), performed by Compañia Nacional de Danza (where Duato is artistic director) a couple of years ago at BAM. The scale of the work fit better on BAM’s larger stage, with more distance from the audience. Nonetheless, this work has something for everybody. It’s set to early Spanish music interspersed with poetry by Garcilaso de la Vega; the dancers begin and end in beige leotards, donning courtly gem-colored dresses and tunics in between. Duato’s muscular choreography suited the company’s talents well—classical, yet modern.
