Such Sweet Thunder

Recommended Posts

Did any one get to the Kennedy Center for Such Sweet Thunder last night? It was a mixed media tribute to Sheakespeare with music by Duke Ellington. It featured music; acting; singing; and dancing. The music was fantasic and I really enjoyed the dance sequences....Lady Macbeth was done by a young dancer named Whitney Fitts with six partners....she did a jazz sequence on pointe and really moved, showing her long legs and turns off to advantage; Ashley Smith did a sultry tango with five partners for Cleopatra. Mercedes Ellington, Duke Ellington's grand-daughter, oversaw the choreography.
