Dance Theatre of Harlem: Fall River Legend

1990 NR

America's leading classical ballet company of black dancers interprets famed choreographer Agnes de Mille's "Fall River Legend," based on the story of Lizzie Borden. Accused in 1892 of the brutal ax killing of her father and stepmother, Borden beat the rap (as it were) and lived to a ripe old age. Such diffuse emotions as love, sadness and death are danced here in an unforgettable performance.
