Strictly Gershwin is a triumphant amalgamation of classical ballet with Gershwin`s inimitable music.
The audience is treated to a mix of music from the 20s and 30s alongside more modern numbers, for an evening of nostalgia and stunningly versatile performances from English National Ballet who perform classical ballet alongside ballroom, tap, jazz and surprisingly even roller blading to create fabulous visual effect.
Act 1 Gershwin on Broadway starts with a dazzling performance by 2011 People’s Choice Award Winner, Shiori Kase and her partner Yonah Acosta.
Paul Robinson and Douglas Mills` toe-tapping performances to “Fascinatin` Rhythm” and “Strike Up The Band”, are unforgettable as are the stunning costumes and choreography for “An American in Paris”.
Act 11 Gershwin in Hollywood features Gershwin`s most famous work, “Rhapsody in Blue”. Erina Takahashi and Zdenek Konvalina`s fantastic dancing only serves to enhance what is an all-time favourite tune.
