The three ballets on this remarkable DVD tell no stories, but they are full of human drama. In one sense, they all ell the same story--of the vitality, daring, intelligence, and emotional depth that a great dancer possesses.
Originally broadcast in 1984 over New York's WNET/Thirteen on "Great Performances," as part of the "Dance in America" series. Mikhail Baryshnikov, along with members of American Ballet Theatre, dance three works choreographed by Twyla Tharp: "The Little Ballet," "Sinatra Suite," and "Push Comes to Shove."
Baryshnikov and dancers of the American Ballet Theatre perform in three ballets bringing Mikhail's technique to new levels and giving him his first opportunity to explore humor in performance. Ballets are "The Little Ballet," "Sinatra Suite" and "The ABC's of Dance."
