Joffrey Ballet takes on Shakespeare in Othello

The Joffrey Ballet’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s Othello opened yesterday. We’ll be joined by Oscar Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, and Scott Speck, Joffrey’s music director & conductor. The two join us to talk about how music and dance fit together, the importance of live music for dance, and about how Goldenthal and the Joffrey collaborated for this production.
