LES GRANDS BALLETS CANADIENS DE MONTRÉAL
October 3 to 19, 2019
Romania’s Edward Clug revisits a fundamentally humanizing 20th century work with the power to bring people together, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, inspired by medieval verse. The work’s introduction, O Fortuna, evokes the World's destiny while Man is powerless in facing its uncertain future.
Les Grands Ballets' artistic director decided to call once more on gifted choreographer Edward Clug – firmly anchored in modernity – in order to reflect, first, the implicit torment of Carmina Burana, but more importantly springtime, hope and love, central themes in the work, which touches human beings in their most visceral dimension, that of their legacy, and longevity.
On stage: 40 dancers, 70 musicians of Les Grands Ballets Orchestra, 40 chorists and 3 renowned vocal soloists with soprano Aline Kutan, tenor Spencer Britten and bass-baritone Alexandre Sylvestre.
Oct 3 to 19, 2019: Thu, Fri, Sat, 8 p.m.
