Win a copy of ‘Ballet 422’ on DVD!
Witness a rare peek behind the curtain at one of the most prestigious ballet companies in the world when Ballet 422 takes the stage on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 26 from Magnolia Home Entertainment.
Directed by Jody Lee Lipes (known for her previous project, NY Export: Opus Jazz), the film follows New York City Ballet Soloist and Resident Choreographer Justin Peck through the intensive and intricate process of developing the company’s 422nd ballet.
Earning a nomination for Best Documentary Feature upon its premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, Ballet 422 centers on Peck who, at only 25, is only the second Resident Choreographer in New York City Ballet history. The engrossing film follows Peck through the grueling two-month process of creating a new ballet, Paz de la Jolla. From costumes to choreography, lighting to music, the fascinating documentary is “an aesthetic experience as much as an intellectual one” (Village Voice).
