NY Export: Opus Jazz (DVD)


A "ballet in sneakers" choreographed by the legendary Jerome Robbins (West Side Story). NY Export: Opus Jazz was a smash hit in 1958 when it was broadcast on TV and toured around the world. Set to a rousing jazz score by Robert Prince, the ballet told the experiences of urban youth by blending ballet, jazz, and ballroom dancing with Latin, African and American rhythms. Now, this contemporary scripted film adaptation returns Jerome Robbins' choreography to the city that inspired it for the first time since West Side Story. Shot on location in New York City and starring an ensemble cast of dancers from the New York City Ballet, NY Export: Opus Jazz re-imagines the original ballet for a new generation. After winning an Audience Award at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival, the film aired nationally on PBS' Great Performances series and was nominated for the prestigious Rose d'Or Award.
