Bright Lights Big City: Ballet Memphis is going to the Kennedy Center



In a recent interview Ballet Memphis' founding director Dorothy Gunther Pugh speculated that her company might currently be developing more original work than any other ballet company in America. It looks like all that hard work is paying off.

Ballet Memphis will make its John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts debut as part of Ballet Across America, an exploration of the breadth and depth of the art form that showcases the best companies from across the country.

Ballet Memphis will perform Trey McIntyre’s In Dreams set to the music of Roy Orbison.
