“Tharp is America’s crossover dance queen… She melds classical ballet with modern dance, avant-garde experiment with Broadway pizzazz, technical rigor with off-the-cuff attitude, uptown glamor with downtown grit.” The Guardian (U.K.)

“What invigorates about Tharp is her restless and unceasing quest to reveal truth in human movement.” The Washington Post

Twyla Tharp is an American dance legend renowned for crafting accessible, impeccable, startlingly original works that expand the boundaries of ballet and modern dance. Celebrating her 60th anniversary as a choreographer, this Diamond Jubilee program features Tharp’s Olivier-nominated triumph, Diabelli, set to Beethoven’s masterpiece of the same name. Rounding out the evening is Tharp’s first partnership with Philip Glass in nearly 40 years, a new collaboration inspired by the composer’s Aguas da Amazonia and performed to live music by Grammy-winning Third Coast Percussion. An Arts & Lectures co-commission.
