Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Presents Wynton Marsalis' Spaces
Join Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as they present an all-new composition for orchestra and dance by Wynton Marsalis titled 'Spaces.’ While Wynton Marsalis does not appear in this performance, his masterful composition will be the highlight of the evening!
Spaces combines modern dance with big band jazz in a playful and wildly entertaining exploration of the animal kingdom. Performed for the first time (to sold-out crowds) in 2016, this visually captivating Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra production has just recently be featured on touring dates. Each of Spaces’ ten movements corresponds to a different animal, from “King Lion” to “Bees, Bees, Bees,” offering a dazzling array of sights and sounds that express the diversity, humor, and quirky majesty found in nature.
For this performance, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will be joined by Bessie Award-winning 'jookin' dance artist Myles Yachts and Broadway triple threat tap artist Jared Grimes—reprising their roles, leaping, sliding, flipping, and tap dancing across the stage.
