A Tempo: Behind American Repertory Ballet's 'Pride and Prejudice'

A Tempo (April 8) explores the creation of the American Repertory Ballet's Pride and Prejudice by Artistic Director Douglas Martin. The work will be performed later this month at McCarter Theatre, with the score performed by the Princeton Symphony Orchestra. Host Rachel Katz speaks with Martin about how he chose the music and approached the libretto and choreography to bring Jane Austen's story to the ballet stage. She also chats with Taras Pavlovsky, dean of the library at The College of New Jersey, who assisted in locating many of the printed versions of the music by Pleyel used in the score. A Tempo also includes news headlines from the world of the performing arts.
