Les Grands Ballets is happy to unveil its 2023-2024 season, the company’s 67th at Place des Arts. For its 7th year at the helm of artistic direction, Ivan Cavallari invites the audience to experience emotional journeys through dance.
Early September 2023, Cinderella by Jayne Smeulders will be back on the stage of Wilfrid-Pelletier for additional performances. Thanks to this addition of three shows, more spectators will enjoy this ballet en pointes, faithful to the tradition of fairytales.
In October, Peter Quanz is invited by Ivan Cavallari to present his creation La Dame aux camélias inspired by the masterpiece of Alexandre Dumas fils. In this Neoclassical ballet, he explores emotional vulnerability, inspired by the fragile and ephemeral beauty of camellias. The costumes and set design evoke the glamour and elegance of Parisian salons while an exclusive orchestral score features compositions by female composers from different epochs.
