Les Grands Ballets Canadiens

This stimulating double bill, by choreographers Edward Clug and the late Uwe Scholz, is a journey from darkness to light: from the mournful lament of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater to Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, which Wagner described as "the apotheosis of dance".

Romanian-born Clug interprets Pergolesi's music by confronting male and female and underlining the eros-thanatos dyad with contrasting colours. Scholz, on the other hand, created a choreography with eminently classical roots to visualize Beethoven's symphony.

A festive celebration of the bodies of male and female dancers that is one of the Canadian company's flagship programmes.
