Les Grandes Ballets Canadiens de Montreal at Jacob's Pillow
July 29 - August 2, 2009
Last seen at the Pillow in 2005, Canadian contemporary ballet company Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal is known for its diverse, adventurous repertoire and collaborations with top choreographers. Under the direction of Gradimir Pankov, the company performs two very different works, both by Italian choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti. Four Seasons is set to Vivaldi’s classic score of the same name and Cantata pays homage to Mediterranean culture and tradition with original and folk music from Southern Italy, performed live onstage by Gruppo Musicale Assurd.
