Balanchine’s sassy and spirited Slaughter on Tenth Avenue and Richard Rodgers’ tantalizing Broadway score open the season with a bang in a 1930s speakeasy.
It’s a hilarious parody of hijinks and high kicks, gangsters and cops, in this ballet about the tap dancer and the impossible stripper he falls in love with. But watch out – her jealous boyfriend is the brutal Big Boss, and he’s hiding in the theater waiting for the moment to pull the trigger on the hoofer… will the police nab him in time?
