Press Quotes

  • "Morris translates the intensity and passion of Schumann's score in a series of dramatic breakups and reconciliations among the dancers accentuating the conflicting nature of their relationship. It's a beautiful, sophisticated work with a touch of glamour."
    Ballet Magazine
  • "It is a marriage of music and psychologically charged movement that is as torrid as any love story."
    Washington Post
