A Historic Tour in Israel Following a 10-Year Absence
February 27 and 28 and March 1, 2019 at the Israeli Opera Tel-Aviv-Yafo.
Les Grands Ballets are dancing on the stage of the Israeli Opera in the heart of the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Centre or the first time in our history.
Vendetta: Storie di Mafia, is a Broadway-style performance from choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa. The narrative work shows off the high calibre of the troupe’s dancing as well as considerable acting talent in the convincing portrayal of a wide array of colourful characters. The company’s touring contingent has some 60 members, including more than 40 dancers, the artistic team, the artistic director, the ballet masters and the production team.
Touring is essential to the troupe’s role as a cultural ambassador for Montreal, reinforcing its reputation as one of the greatest ballet companies in the national and international arenas. It is also a means of showcasing the immense talent of Les Grands Ballets, here and abroad.
