North Carolina Dance Theatre's
impressive reputation is based on superb dancers, high energy and a versatile
repertoire ranging from full-length classical ballets to innovative contemporary
works. In choreographer Mark Diamond’s “A Streetcar Named Desire,” an intensely
dramatic ballet inspired by Tennessee Williams’ play, Blanche DuBois, a
worn and vulnerable beauty, tries to preserve her beautiful but dreamlike
world of the past in the brash and decadent atmosphere of 1950s New Orleans.
Hot jazz, contemporary and classical music heighten the experience of this
dynamic production by a company that The New York Times calls "unstinting
in range and thunder."
