Pearl

Dates 11 December 2013 to 20 April 2014

Romance, resplendence and sumptuousness, seduction, decadence and decay are the ingredients that choreographer Ed Wubbe, and his full complement of dancers, invoke in bringing Pearl to life.

This intoxicating choreography to virtuoso dance music by composers such as Vivaldi exudes the heady, theatrical mood of the Baroque and is driven by the tempo and dynamism of now.

The wonderful music is performed live by the distinguished Combattimento musicians joined alternately by one of the celebrated alto singers Helena Rasker, Noa Frenkel and Cecile van de Sant or counter tenor, Kaspar Kröner. And, with spectacular costumes for the dancers and musicians, Pearl is a visual feast to rival any spectacle that exhilarated contemporary Versailles. Both on, and off, stage.

Pearl is “Dance at its best”, according to the Dutch daily newspaper de Volkskrant. Last season, the baroque sensation by company choreographer Ed Wubbe, to the live accompaniment of intoxicating music performed by Combattimento was one of the biggest box office dance hits. Now, Pearl is home from a sell-out tour and back in the theatres by popular demand.
