JUDITH JAMISON, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Masazumi Chaya, ASSOCIATE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
May 20 – 23
A week of special performances as Ailey – America’s Cultural Ambassador to the World – celebrates Judith Jamison’s 20th anniversary as “the most stellar and admired artistic director of any repertory company in America.” (the New York Times)
All performances include Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations.
“Every American owes it to him or herself to see the Ailey [company] perform Revelations. It is an American phenomenon. I’ve probably seen it countless times and every time it’s magical and spiritual and hopeful—everything we want ourselves to be and hope that our country will be.”
