Monteverdi Vespers - Royal Winnipeg Ballet of Canada

NOVEMBER 1 - 3, 2018
8:00 PM
SOUTHAM HALL1 Elgin Street, Ottawa

NAC Presentation

As the curtain rises, and you hear the choir’s first notes of Claudio Monteverdi’s Baroque masterpiece Vespers, 1610, you will be mesmerized by this new full-length ballet. Renowned choreographer James Kudelka creates a mythology-infused world reminiscent of a gilded Renaissance tapestry, where dancers in larger-than-life masks explore humankind’s relationship with the natural and spiritual worlds. Vespers features the legendary prima ballerina Evelyn Hart, gracefully captivating the audience as Everywoman, a central role created just for her.

Did you know: Including Vespers, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet has commissioned 18 full length ballets in the last 20 years.
