Offenbach in the Underworld

One of the great originals of modern dance forms, Tudor is seen as a principal trans-former of ballet into a modern art. His work is usually considered as modern "psychological" expression of austerity, elegance and nobility. Offenbach in the Underworld, a humorous story about the flirtatious interactions among celebrities at a 1870s French café, is filled with colorful characters and costumes. It culminates with a sultry and exhilarating chorus line of high kicking known as the “can-can.”
