It is rare in this country that a ballet company relies on the energy and talent of one creator. And having followed one of them for over twenty-five years, it’s tempting to suspect that there won’t be much new. Yet with the annual spring season's reprise of the 2014 "Shostakovich" and the premiere of "Sand", Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet, on the eve of an upcoming eleven-city tour of Europe, presented a singularly satisfying program.
