Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This performance video presents the Dance Theater of Harlem in an evening of music and dance. Led by founder and choreographer Arthur Mitchell, the dance company puts on a show, featuring four of their best-known works, including "Fall River Legend", a dramatic telling of the story of Lizzie Bordon; "The Beloved", a pas de deux that looks at the dark side of love; "Troy Game", which makes a political statement about the world of sports; and "John Henry", a story of perseverance against all odds.
