Dance Theatre of Harlem

 

A singular presence in the ballet world, the internationally-renowned Dance Theatre of Harlem returns to the Detroit Opera House.

The 18-member multi-ethnic company performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured classics, neoclassical works by George Balanchine and resident choreographer Robert Garland, and innovative contemporary works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture. These two mixed repertory performances include the Detroit premiere of Robert Garland’s Higher Ground, set to the music of Motown legend Stevie Wonder and Claudia Schreier’s Passage, a moving reflection on the fortitude of the human spirit.

Luxury coach service will be offered for the Saturday evening performance.

Presented by Michigan Opera Theatre. This performance is available through the Dance Series and as a special add-on event for other subscribers.
