The first collaboration between world-renowned choreographer Jerome Robbins and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, N.Y. Export, Op. Jazz is a timeless piece which conveys our youths’ outlook and their attitude toward this contemporary world—their need for self-expression and identification. Robert Prince’s rhythmic, jazzy score provides an excellent backdrop for this abstract, dynamic ballet. “Jerome Robbins Ballet: USA” first performed the ballet in1958 at the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy.
