Alonzo King LINES Ballet kicks off its 40th Anniversary season with the world premiere of a new work featuring Grammy Award-winning vocalist Lisa Fischer performing live alongside the LINES Ballet dancers. The work is set to a score by jazz pianist, composer, and MacArthur Fellow Jason Moran. This is King’s second collaboration with Fischer and his ninth collaboration with Moran.

Fischer, a brilliant vocalist who has shared the stage with musical luminaries of nearly every genre, including Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Beyoncé and Sting, is also an accomplished solo artist. Her 1991 album So Intense garnered her a Grammy Award for the single “How Can I Ease the Pain.” She was also featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary, Twenty Feet from Stardom. Fischer is an exciting artistic partner for King, who is noted for his collaborations with celebrated composers, musicians, and visual artists.
