The journey beyond tutus takes us from traditional classical ballet to the striking contemporary work being produced today.
Pas de Quatre, the romantic classic caused a sensation when it was created for the four greatest ballerinas of the time in 1845. Next up, Sing Sing Sing inspired by Bob Fosse, a legendary choreographer of Broadway & Hollywood throughout the 60s and 70s.
The second half of the programme features the premiere of a powerful and magical new ballet, Lost, created for the company by Ludovic Ondiviela. BI continues its commitment to new work in presenting this compelling piece by this ‘young rising choreographer’ (The Guardian).
With lighting by award winning designer Paul Keogan, this mixed programme shows the diversity of the company Swan Lake , which ‘ticked all the boxes’ (Sunday Independent) and was hailed as ‘one of best productions’ the company has done (Irish Mail on Sunday).
Dancers: Richard Bermange, Chris Furlong, Céline Le Grelle, Maria Ledesma, James Löffler, Jane Magan, Simona Marsibilio, Kesi Olley-Dorey, Diarmaid O’Meara
