The Sun Also Rises - Ballet
The Sun Also Rises is a 2013 ballet adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises that was premiered by The Washington Ballet at The Kennedy Center under Artistic Director Septime Webre, whose parents had known Hemingway. It is the first version of this work en pointe.
The story follows American journalist Jake Barnes, a member of the "lost generation" of 1920s American expatriates, from the seedy café life of Paris's Left Bank to the thrilling "running of the bulls" in Pamplona, Spain.
