Simply fabulous! Death is menacing even in rehearsal garb. Thank you so much for sharing it.
I'm pretty sure that's Max Zomosa as Death -- he was riveting.

This brings back so many memories of that first City Center set of performances. I was a student at the time. The Vietnam War (with its obsession with military hardware and "body counts") was at its height. Everything -- I mean everything -- was affected by this war, especially if you were young..
This ballet had an effect on me more powerful and enduring than just about any dance work I've seen. I think it was the bitterness of the satire at the beginning of the ballet --even more than the tragic events that develop when the war begins -- that was most shattering.
I came back to see it two more times. The emotional and visual memories have never really left me.
