“Joffrey’s choreography matches Satie for brevity of wit. In a breathless succession of solos, pas de deux and ensembles, he demonstrates what a brilliant choreographer can do with classical body language.”

—Hubert Saal, Newsweek

A ballet depicting vignettes of Paris in the early 1900s, evoking fleeting relationships and whimsical memories, with challenging maneuvers and luscious classical movement.
