A review of Washington Ballet by Sarah Kaufman in The Washington Post.
I’d rather see a crystal-clear “Theme,” attentive to all details, than a pretty good one. So yes, it was too much to ask. This “Theme” was a heavy lift. That said, I look forward to its return to the repertoire, for the dancers are not far from delivering the needed clarity. Jordan’s quiet, understated demeanor, moving neatly from pose to pose without strain, was just right and a welcome respite from the showier, muscular displays in the program’s earlier pas de deux.
