Choreographer: Alvin Ailey.  Alvin Ailey said that one of America’s richest treasures was the cultural heritage of the African-American —"sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but... always hopeful." This enduring classic is a tribute to that heritage and to Ailey’s genius. Using African-American religious music--spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs and holy blues--this suite fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul."Is there a more moving work in 20th century dance than Revelations?
