Alonzo King Lines Ballet

Alonzo King Lines Ballet is not your grandmother’s ballet. Sure, audiences can expect all of the hallmarks of the medium—seemingly effortless athletics, perfect precision, sweeping classical music, leg muscles capable of breaking a Thighmaster—but they’ll also see symbolic light displays and hear contemporary world music. It’s a style of dance Alonzo King calls “muscular classicism,” and it proves that ballet remains relevant in the modern world. In Concerto for Two Violins, one of Bach’s masterpieces recalls the classic work of Balanchine, and in Resin, choreography for duets and quartets explores Sephardic music’s interaction with Italian and Turkish music, as well as archival field recordings interwoven with Judeo-Spanish music.
