In the Upper Room
Choreography by Twyla Tharp
Music by Philip Glass
A ballet in nine parts, In the Upper Room is one of ABT’s most impressive performances. Somewhere between ballet and modern dance, Tharp’s choreography calls for a power and grace from the dancers that demands attention. Bold kinetic movements blend with Philip Glass’s propelling original score, creating a transcendent experience for both audience and dancers.
