Ballet Zurich: A new work with music by Michael Gordon
18th May 2017
Both ballets explore the relationship between new and ancient music, inspired by Baroque composers. Lee’s Lady with the Fan is based on the painting of the same name by Diego Veláquez. It takes music from Vivaldi’s violin concerti as its starting point and blends it together with excerpts of Gotham and Romeo by Michael Gordon. This is the second time Lee has choreographed music by Gordon; in 2012 he impressed audiences and critics alike with his work Aria for the Stuttgart Ballet.
Both parts of CORPUS will be performed on period instruments and conducted by baroque music specialist Christopher Moulds. It runs from 27 May to 2 July, 2017 at Hauptbühne Opera House, Zürich
