Dir. Henry Joost & Jody Lee Lipes, USA, 2010, 61 min.
In 1958, Jerome Robbins’s “ballet in sneakers” became a hit that toured the world. In 2010, New York City Ballet dancers Ellen Bar and Sean Souzzi reimagined the Robbins choreography for the screen, taking a new generation of City Ballet dancers - Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck among the group – to various locations around the city where these character-driven interludes take place. With its jazzy score and urban vibe, the film moves with the rhythms of the city that so often inspired Robbins. Followed by a brief documentary about the making of OPUS JAZZ.
