Twyla Tharp commissioned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis to create a new score for Jump Start. Marsalis and his band played live during the premiere season at the Metropolitan Opera House. The dancers approach this high-octane dance with a spirited attack. Running crosses interrupt athletic solos and unison phrases, generating an excited, jovial energy onstage.
