Robert Prince | Jerome Robbins | New York City Ballet


NY Export : Opus Jazz

The first film conceived, created, produced and danced by dancers from the New York City Ballet.

This modern-day narrative film adaptation of the 1958 Jerome Robbins’ ballet of the same name takes the original choreography (by the legendary creator of West Side Story) and returns it to the streets of New York in this abstract tale of disaffected urban youth set to a rousing jazz score.

Shot on anamorphic 35mm on location all over New York City with a cast of dancers from the New York City Ballet.

Cast of the film (New York City Ballet): Robert Fairchild, Tiler Peck, Georgina Paczoguin, Rachel Rutherford, Craig Hall, Antonio Carmena, Adam Hendrickson, Rebecca Krohn, Troy Schumacher, Ashley Laracey, Amar Ramasar, Andrew Veyette, Brittany Pollack, Gretchen Smith, Austin Laurent, Glenn Keenan, Giovanni Villalobos, Amanda Hankes
