collaborated with the New York City Ballet
for their 2010 spring season festival of new choreography, "Architecture of Dance." One of the major thrusts of ballet dance is to appear to defy gravity, so working with Calatrava, who is known for his architectural works suggesting flight, makes perfect sense to me. The "Architecture of Dance"
festival included seven world premiere ballets, five of which included sets designed by Calatrava. Four new scores were also commissioned for the festival. For the performances, eight new cocktails were created - one for each choreographer, and a one for Santiago Calatrava: Sangria of Spanish Red Wine, Triple Sec, Rum, Vodka & Seasonal Fruits.
