Dance work in two acts by Nicolo Fonte
Music by Peter Tchaikovsky
After several exciting dance works at the Göteborg Opera, renowned American choreographer Nicolo Fonte has now been given the task of creating a full-length ballet especially for our company. As the central figure Nicolo Fonte has chosen Peter Tchaikovsky, the man behind the eternal classics Swanlake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker. Fonte uses Tchaikovsky's own letters and diaries to add new dimensions to our image of the man and the composer.
Just as its predecessor, Follia in Re: Baroque, this work refers to a specific period of time and describes our relationship to its art and artists. At the same time we can enjoy the world's most beautiful ballet music in a completely new context.
The Göteborg Ballet, the Göteborg Opera Orchestra and song soloist Cecilia Vallinder.
