Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

The 56-year old AA American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states, as well as 71 countries on six continents. Often engaged as an ambassador for modern American dance, the troupe saw its first such engagement in 1962 as part of John F Kennedy's south east Asian and Australian tour. Whilst its repertoire is known primarily for its jazz influences, chief creative director Robert Battle has added to the dances by welcoming collaborations with other eminent choreographers, which reflects the company's ever-expanding body of work.

Washington National Opera: The Flying Dutchman at the Kennedy Center Opera House, Washington

Washington National Opera: The Flying Dutchman

From 7 Mar 2015

The spectre of the Flying Dutchman has long been a terrifying sight for sailors. At its heart is a wretch of a captain, damned by Satan to roam the oceans forever, with the chance of salvation presented once only every seven years, when they may go ashore and attempt to find true love. Wagner's nautical adventure is a thrilling and haunting opera and marked a turning point in his career.
