WORLD PREMIERE

A New Ballet Choreographed to Claudio Monteverdi’s ‘Vespers, 1610’

We welcome the Spring of 2017 with a new creation based on the music of Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers. Vespers means “evening prayer” and for over four hundred years have certainly stood the test of time. It remains well known to this day – a true testament to the music’s remarkable power and quality.

Leading this newly commissioned work is internationally acclaimed choreographer, James Kudelka. One of his well-known pieces, The Four Seasons made its Winnipeg premiere during RWB’s 13-14 season. With Vespers, we look forward to seeing how Kudelka will combine dramatic atmospheres with creative classical ballet technique and contemporary styles and perspectives on relationships, nature and the spiritual world.
