For almost a century, composer George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" has served as one of the most iconic musical portraits of New York City.

To support the spirit of the city at a time of struggle, choreographer Caleb Teicher assembled an ensemble of dancers including LaTasha Barnes, Nathan Bugh, Gaby Cook, Abdiel Jacobsen, Jennifer Jones, and Macy Sullivan with acclaimed pianist and composer Conrad Tao playing live to create a new work that captures New York City in all its beauty and peril.

The work premiered on March 20, 2021 at Works & Process in the Guggenheim Museum rotunda.
