Brooklyn Ballet has collaborated with Patricia Forelle since she designed costumes for Mystery Sonatas in 2005. (You can read more about our work with Patricia here.)

Her breathtaking Baroque costumes (see above) for La Folia earned her a 2011 Bessie Award nomination for design, and we simply can't wait to see our dancers in costume for this year's Forest Fairies and Peasant Revolt.
This season, Brooklyn Ballet will perform a new mixed movement work to Stravinsky's "Suite Italienne" from the ballet Pulcinella. Lynn is using video of past creations to Pergolesi's original orchestral score to inspire this year's choreography.
Brooklyn Ballet dancers crowd around a video of Lynn's past choreography.
Lynn provides instruction about a duet in the piece.
Some of the ballet's later sections will include street dancers and African-based movement.
Beautiful dancing by Brooklyn Ballet's company members in rehearsal this week...even with the blooper at the end of this clip. We're not worried - our show is in March!
