THE FOUR SEASONS

BALLET MARIÏNSKY FROM SAINT PETERSBURG

BALLET MARIÏNSKY FROM SAINT PETERSBURG
The Mariinsky Theatre Ballet from Saint Petersburg will be raising the curtain on the 33rd Castell de Peralada Festival. This will be the first time that this prestigious company, a legend in the dance world, will be showcasing its art on the Empordà stage, presenting two very different programmes. The complete ballet of The Four Seasons with choreography by the young Ilya Zhivoi, also a dancer with the Mariinsky Theatre who regularly takes part in the Creative Workshop of Young Choreographers at the Mariinsky Ballet Festival, will be starring on the first of the two evenings. Zhivoi presents a fresh and modern proposal; a neo-classical ballet with clear, simple and effective staging where the spectral and free-flowing dresses, designed by equally young designer Sonya Vatayan, flow and change colour in each of the seasons and serve to help the narration. With music by contemporary British composer Max Richter on the masterpiece by Antonio Vivaldi, the shapes, textures and dynamic of Vivaldi’s cycle join up with electronic sounds. A meeting between the old and the new. A new choreography of classical yet surprising language. The Four Seasons like you’ve never experienced them.
