Jerome Robbins' 1958 "Ballet in Sneakers," NY Export: Opus Jazz, comes full circle in a vibrant new film adaptation conceived by New York City Ballet soloists Ellen Bar and Sean Suozzi. Taking Robbins' masterpiece off of the stage and placing it back into the landscapes that inspired it, New York City, the production features an evocative jazz score by Robert Prince.
