February 27 and 28 and March 1, 2019 at the Israeli Opera Tel-Aviv-Yafo.
As proud representatives of Canada’s creativity in dance, Les Grands Ballets is committed to shining on world stages. In recent years, the company has performed across Canada, in Europe and in Latin America.
In 2019, the Tel-Aviv tour will mark our return to the Middle East, where we last performed exactly 10 years ago. This time, and for the first time in our history, Les Grands Ballets will dance on the stage of the Israeli Opera in the heart of the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Centre, which welcomes one million visitors annually.
The ballet selected for the tour, 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.
