Press Quote:

โ€œSinopoli uses the dimensions of both space and time deftly, varying the tone and arrangements as the music changes, stretching the shape of the dance down to the floor and then toward the sky. The fourth of the five very different sections is a dazzler: the dancers throw themselves across the stage, eating up space as they fly, shirttails fluttering over their tight-fitting black leggings and tops.โ€ ~Times Union
