One of the best-known and most canonical of American stage plays – and equally esteemed as a film – Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire is adapted for dance by choreographer John Neumeier. In his 1983 ballet version of the play, Mr. Neumeier is less concerned with simply retelling the precise narrative details of the original than with using the famous story of Blanche Dubois as a way of exploring themes of memory, madness and desire.
