BWW Reviews: BALLET DU GRAND THEATRE DE GENEVE Returns to the Joyce With a New York Premiere
by Sondra Forsyth - Mar 27, 2014

The evening of March 25th 2014 was opening night for a six-day run at the Joyce Theater of 'Glory', a mostly glorious offering choreographed by Greek-born Andonis Foniadakis for the Ballet du Grand Theatre de Geneve. A press release referred to the piece as 'an evening-length work' but that depends on your definition of an evening at the theater. 'Glory' is only about an hour long and is performed, wisely, without an intermission. Interrupting the action would have been a mistake. Even so, programming for adults rarely lasts a mere 60 minutes. The company might have been better off giving us a double bill, although to be fair the tickets are modestly priced at $10 to $49 and $26 to $37 for Joyce Theater members. (more...)
