Ailey II: Revelations
Description: Ailey II begins its residency with a program built around Alvin Ailey's masterpiece, Revelations. Using African-American spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs and holy blues, this cultural treasure fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul. Since its premiere in 1960, the ballet has been performed around the globe, transcending barriers of faith and nationality. Join us as Ailey II opens the Chautauqua season and helps us serve our mission to explore the best in human values.
