Bolero
Bolero (2002)

Length: 16 minutes
Music: Maurice Ravel
Lighting: David Finley
Costumes: Russ Vogler
Set: Harry Feiner


Bolero is a bold and unique interpretation of the famous musical score. Its perpetual motion and ever-changing patterns build to its illusive but inevitable climax. The unrelenting crescendo of energy creates a riveting tour de force.
