Premiere ROSSINI CARDSGioachino Rossini & Mauro Bigonzetti
Rossini cards is a contemporary ballet performance that has delighted both the critics and the audience throughout Europe and North America. In its core abstract and without a firm dramaturgical framework, it still offers scenes from parallel lives, intriguing turns of events from dramatic into comic situations; unexpected connections that oscillate between eroticism, vanity and irony. By exceptionally skilful joining of the classical dancing technique and Rossini’s baroque music, Bigonzetti (together with his team of authors) has created a masterpiece of modern art that goes beyond the exclusively ballet one. With regard to both the movement and expression, dancers will face the challenge to perform choreographic sequences in the range from the classical, lyric, yearning and profoundly warm up to the comical, sumptuous, sensual, lively, even the furious ones. In short, both for the dancers and the audience this work is a top-grade feast that manifests all the innovativeness and emotionality of the two great maestros, Rossini and Bigonzetti.
