Known as the “feel-good company,” Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal consistently delivers sophisticated, technically-stunning works by the world’s most renowned choreographers. “Runway-sleek with polished moves” meeting “the energy of a tsunami with stamina to spare” (Los Angeles Times), the company is among the dance world’s elite—coolly stylized, athletic and refined. The program features a world premiere as well as the Philadelphia premieres of Harry, a dark comedy about a young man’s trials and tribulations created by Israeli-American choreographer Barak Marshall, and Closer, a romantic pas de deux contributed by Black Swan choreographer and new Director of Dance for the Paris Opera Ballet, Benjamin Millepied.
