An American Tale

  • Atlas Performing Arts Center 1333 H St NE Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Join us in celebration of three American composers: you’ll find new treasures and old favorites united by their connection to dance. We’re excited to perform the world premier of Charlie Barnett’s Mid-Century Mambo; it’s all about rhythm and joy. It’s hard to believe that Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring was premiered way back in 1944. This iconic piece of Americana still feels fresh and new. Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story complete the program. This piece is a whirlwind tour through the memorable music of one of the greatest musicals of all time. It includes everything from the wild dance numbers to the touching romantic theme.
