When American tourists Tommy and Jeff get lost on vacation in Scotland they stumble into Brigadoon, a mythical village that appears for only one day every 100 years. No outsider can stay in Brigadoon unless they fall in love, and no resident can ever leave or the village will vanish forever. But when Tommy falls for a village girl, he is forced to choose between returning to the world that he knows—or taking a chance on life and love in the mysterious Brigadoon. Big, beautiful and beguiling, Brigadoon is a “ravishing” (The New Yorker) musical delight that will sweep you off your feet.

    Dance in Brigadoon  

    Dance in Brigadoon

    What I learned about dance storytelling, I learned from watching Agnes de Mille’s beautiful ballets in movies like Oklahoma and Carousel.  It was new way of approaching the work that had an indelible effect on me as young choreographer.  It gave me a foundation upon which to base my own brand of dance storytelling.  I have never seen any of the footage of the de Mille choreography for Brigadoon. I don’t know if any exists. I have no doubt it would have been revolutionary.
