Chagall and Ballet in Montreal

Recommended Posts

Until June 11, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is offering a special exhibition on the theme "Chagall and Music". It includes many costume sketches and costumes for Massine's Aleko, likewise for Skibine's 1959 version of Daphnis and Chloe for Paris Opera Ballet, with film of Marie-Agnes Gillot and Yann Saiz dancing the pas de deux for a 2004 gala, amazing close ups of the ceiling of the Opera Garnier (must have been shot from a drone), and more.

You could combine a trip to Montreal with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens' next performance run, May 25 to June 3:

" Set to Steve Reich’s extraordinary music and percussion, Kylián’s Falling Angels is a mesmerizing study for eight dancers, a powerful work of the highest order. His pure and refined Evening Songs are set to Dvořák’s a cappella songs of the same name, and performed live by a choir. Finally, Stephan Thoss’s Searching for Home, an inner voyage into the multiplicity of the self, features 16 dancers in a piece inspired by the music of Philip Glass and the images it evokes. "

and if you're ambitious you could then hop on a train from Montreal to Toronto to see the National Ballet of Canada in A Streetcar Named Desire (Neumeier), June 3 -10.
