Bolero-300x168Bolero & Other Works

November 4, 2014 at 7:30pm

CHOREOGRAPHY: Igor Dobrovolskiy

BOLERO Originally composed as a ballet commissioned by Russian actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein, the piece, which premiered in 1928, is Ravel’s most famous musical composition and epitomizes Ravel’s preoccupation with restyling and reinventing dance movements. Igor Dobrovolskiy works cleverly convey human emotion within the landscape of movement in a way that redefines classical dance and engages audiences.

Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada is thrilled to partner with the outstanding woodwind quintet VENTUS MACHINA in a brilliant evening of movement harmony, vitality with the virtuoso dancers of the company.
