Story

What Is the Story of Come Fly Away?
Come Fly Away doesn’t have much of a narrative. Instead this dance experience combines the music and original vocals of Frank Sinatra with the innovative choreography of Twyla Tharp. The loose story tells the tale of four couples at a dreamlike nightclub in different states of romance—from first flirtation to breakup jealousy—and follows their coupling and uncoupling through muscular, elegant dance.
