Ballet in four sections with choreography by Laura Dean, Charles Moulton, Margot Sappington, and Peter Pucci, set to rock music by Prince. Premiered 27 Jan. 1993 by the Joffrey Ballet at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. Choreographed to thirteen songs by the pop star Prince, the full-length rock ballet saved the Joffrey from financial disintegration. Although neither an artistic or critical success, Billboards earned millions of dollars at the box office during its first three years.

Subjects: Dance.
