Joshua Bergasse to Choreograph West Side Story at Lyric Opera of Chicago!

“In 2019, Lyric’s larger-than-life new production and company premiere of West Side Story took Chicago by storm with sold-out performances. With the lush sound of the Lyric Orchestra playing the original orchestrations and a cast that was called “expansive” by the Chicago Tribune, seeing a Broadway classic this way is a rare treat.

In 2023, Leonard Bernstein’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics will once again transplant Romeo and Juliet to the backstreets of New York City in this timeless Broadway musical masterpiece.” – Lyric Opera of Chicago

Joshua Bergasse and Sara Mearns Premiere “Gershwin Sweet” as part of “America(na) To Me” at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival!

“‘Gershwin Sweet!’, choreographed by Joshua Bergasse, is a charming, reminiscent shout-out to Broadway and Hollywood dance of yesteryear. Set to breezy George Gershwin tunes performed onstage by pianist Jonathan Howard Katz, Gilbert Bolden III, Gonzalo Garcia, and Sara Mearns (all currently or formerly with New York City Ballet) have a goofy good time twining grapevines or knocking off faux-show-offy pirouettes.” – The Berkshire Eagle

Sara Mearns and Joshua Bergasse to Perform in Premiere of “America(na) To Me” at Jacob’s Pillow!

“In 1942, Jacob’s Pillow presented the very first concert in the Ted Shawn Theatre. Conceived as a showcase of American Folk Dances curated by Shawn, the program included square dances and Agnes de Mille’s Hell on Wheels, inaugurating the first theatre in the United States designed for dance. As we celebrate the renovation of the Ted Shawn Theatre and the 90th anniversary of the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Associate Curators Melanie George and Ali Rosa-Salas revisit the theme of that first program by inviting dance artists to reflect on what American identity means to them. America(na) to Me encapsulates the heart of the 90th Anniversary Season at Jacob’s Pillow, looking at the dance landscape and the world at large today. This presentation offers an ever-timely reflection on how dance engages questions of heritage, tradition, and belonging.” America(na)To Me runs from June 22-26. Click here for tickets!
