Gershwin Suite & Schubert Frames
After wowing audiences with his astounding production of Rite of Spring and Bolero in 2018, choreographer Michele Merola now focuses his extraordinary visual imagination on Gershwin’s euphoric and brilliant pieces, set in the most romantic and intimate, sensual and seductive tones.
Choreographer Enrico Morelli wanted to entrust his new work to Franz Schubert’s extraordinary music: no one better than the Viennese composer has been able to interpret the contrasting feelings of love, tension, melancholy, regret, but also hope. The music, composed two centuries ago, still amazes because of its great relevance.
In collaboration with the Chutzpah Festival.
