Product Description

NY Export: Opus Jazz is a scripted adaptation of a 1958 "ballet in sneakers" by Jerome Robbins, a companion piece to his legendary West Side Story, that tells an abstract tale of disaffected urban youth. Shot entirely on location in the abandoned spaces of today's New York City on anamorphic 35mm, the film returns the original choreography to the streets that inspired it. Featuring dancers from the New York City Ballet, NY EXPORT: OPUS JAZZ reveals the timelessness of Robbins' vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting, dynamic, wonderful October 17, 2010
I was fortunate to see this when it was broadcast on Great Performances. If you have any interest at all in dance - really really good dance - you need to see this film. Jerome Robbins remarkable choreography combined with exciting young dancers and fine filmmaking makes for a memorable experience. I plan to see it again and again, just as soon as the DVD is released.

4.0 out of 5 stars different view of a great ballet January 31, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen the ballet live in NYC, I was fascinated by the way the choreography was set to fit into the background of NYC streets and buildings and how it complemented the original choreography, which of course is "àla West Side Story". One must always remember that film is two dimensional and the stage is three dimensional and it's a LIVE presentation each and every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing January 19, 2011
I watched this each time it aired on Great Performances and was totally spellbound each time. Video isn't always the best way for an audience to feel the energy of a dance piece, but it's so well done that the experience of watching the film definitely rivals the live experience. It's very intimately shot but the camera work also allows you to see the patterns of the dancers' bodies from many angles, including really beautiful aerial shots.

I was in awe the first time I viewed this on TV and continue to be amazing at the quality of the dancing. The filming production is first rate, the music is engaging, and, of course, the choreography is beyond comparison. Fabulous!!

I thought this was one of the best of Jerome Robbins works. It was very inventive and the performers were excellent in executing the selections.
