Mauro Bigonzetti: Four Seasons and Cantata

Mauro Bigonzetti: Four Seasons and Cantata: Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal
MONTREAL  •  Théâtre Maisonneuve  •  Ongoing

Four Seasons
Choreography: Mauro Bigonzetti

"It would never have crossed my mind before to choreograph to the music of Vivaldi's Four Seasons," says Bigonzetti. "If it had, I would have thought I'd lost my mind. The music is some of the world's best known and most often interpreted!" Still, the choreographer risked the venture. Created for Les Grands Ballets in May 2007, Bigonzetti's first ballet for a Canadian company is one of Les Grands greatest successes on tour, performed, among others, at Les Étés de la danse festival in Paris in 2008 and at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts in the Summer of 2009.

Choreography: Mauro Bigonzetti

Cantata, originally created for Ballet Gulbenkian in 2001, was added to Les Grands' repertoire in 2007. Cantata pays homage to Italian culture and to its musical tradition. The piece is inspired by Italian music from the 18th and 19th centuries, from lullabies to the pizziche of Salento, and with a nod to Neapolitan serenades.
