What has not changed is Revelations. The mastery and presence that these dancers bring to a work that they perform year after year remains a wonder. Rushing in "I Wanna Be Ready" and Linda Celeste Sims and Glenn Allen Sims in "Fix me, Jesus" — the work's most movingly intimate choreography — were stunning to behold. The audience started clapping at the sound of the first note and wouldn't stop until they got their encore of "Rocka My Soul." That was Ailey, as ever, at Zellerbach.
