Mambo & Other Works

MAMBO and Other Works is a mixed program that features three innovative works by BC-based choreographers commissioned by Ballet Kelowna.

1723 - Vivaldi (2017) Choreography: Wen Wei Wang Music: Antonio Vivaldi, The Four Seasons Recomposed by: Max Richter A mesmerizing sextet created by “one of the country’s most in-demand choreographers” (The Globe and Mail), Chinese-Canadian dance luminary Wen Wei Wang. Featuring extreme technical prowess from its sextet of dancers, with complex pointe work and powerful extensions, 1723 - Vivaldi is an evocative display of winter’s stark surroundings - bare, mesmerizing, and haunting. “Every part of their bodies had a role to play, sometimes in unexpected ways.” ~ The Daily Courier

Cuatro Estaciones (2019) Choreography: Simone Orlando Music: Astor Piazzolla, Four Seasons of Buenos Aires and Antonio Vivaldi, The Four Seasons An evocative tango-inspired ensemble piece by Ballet Kelowna’s visionary Artistic Director Simone Orlando, set to virtuoso composer Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Orlando’s choreography infuses ballet’s contemporary lines with the intricate, expressive elements of Argentine Tango and features the full company performing fiery steps in stunning group formations and seductive duets “Passionate, fiery, exquisite, breathtaking.” ~ The Daily Courier

MAMBO (2018) Choreography: Alysa Pires Music: Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Julie London, Xavier Cugat, Sarah Vaughan, Dean Martin, and Louis Prima The piece gained worldwide acclaim after performances at Beijing’s China International Performing Arts Expo and Toronto’s Fall For Dance North Festival in 2018. Pires’ “crowd-pleasing MAMBO” (The Globe and Mail), is a colourful joie de vivre set to a vibrant soundtrack of Latin, swing, and jazz standards by musical legends such as Dean Martin, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughn, and more. “...a gift that kept on giving to an audience that was eating it up.” ~ Regular Guy Reviewer
