In a performance that’s sure to leave audiences talking, this celebrated Montréal ensemble will present two significant ballets by company namesake, Marie Chouinard. Performed with live accompaniment, Chouinard’s 24 Preludes by Chopin plays with the very structure of Chopin’s preludes to create a jubilant, yet solemn work that reveals new facets of this iconic music. Considered one of her most important creations, The Rite of Spring reexamines Stravinsky’s unforgettable score in an avant-garde visual spectacle.

“Chouinard’s Rite of Spring is 55 minutes of choreographic brilliance performed with blazing energy by an extraordinary cast of seven dancers.” The Toronto Star
