LA Philharmonic

Rapsodie espangole!

SO excited to return to the LA Phil to direct and choreograph a new production of RAVEL’S Bolero for Toyota Symphonies for Youth!

Love working with the extraordinary Ottavio Taddei, Natacha Bachour and Micaela DePauli in creating this new dance theater piece inspired by Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. Telling story through dance and music is what I live for!

The second part of the show - inspired by factory machines and Spanish dance, Bolero, is sure to quicken the pulse. It’ll be impossible not to get caught up in the insistent rhythms and careening melody as the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs this timeless piece.

Sat, April 6th & 20th || 11am @ Disney Hall
