"'Sentir em Nos' (Even for Us) is a signature style duet by Chaves, which explores a torrid affair set to the powerful music of Tuscan tenor Andrea Bocelli and Dulce Pontes. The duet sets the stage for a dramatic look inside a tumultuous relationship between a man and a woman, with sweeping red drapes and a flowing gown designed by Jordan Ross. As with the other duets Chaves has choreographced for the company, 'Sentir em Nos' combines highly skilled and demanding partner work with an emotional story for a passionate performance.

"Chaves' choreography had every bit of flash and depth that an audience would want. From the moment the piece began, the drama of the music, the sumptuous hanging background curtains, and the elegant costumes served as the perfect framework for exquisit execution of intricate choreography. This was a piece that demanded nothing from the audience, and gave us everything."
