The tickets are already on sale with an introductory offer to enjoy the Montreal-based company's show.


The Auditorio de Tenerife offers on 27 and 28 April two performances of Les Grand Ballets Canadiens. The Symphonic Hall will host two shows consisting of the performances of Symphony No. 7 (Beethoven) and Cantata by the Montreal company. The tickets are already on sale with an introductory discount of 15%.

As a creation and production company, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens is devoted to developing dance in all its forms, building on the discipline of classical ballet. Under the artistic direction of Ivan Cavallari, some forty Canadian and international dancers bring the great classics of ballet to the stage, as well as the creations and repertoire of established and emerging contemporary artists.

Located in the heart of Montréal's Quartier des Spectacles, Les Grands Ballets is wholly committed to giving to as many people as possible access to dance. Through its production and the scope of its cultural and social actions, the company seeks to inspire discovery and conjure emotions, stimulate the imagination, convey passion for dance and create a lasting impact.

With Symphony No 7 by the late German choreographer Uwe Scholz (1958-2004), the dancers enter into a symbiotic relationship with Beethoven's imposing music. The work becomes a leitmotif, with its athletic prowess and unison dance geometry.

Structured in four movements that form a succession of different colours and rhythms, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 was first performed in 1813 during the terrible period of the Napoleonic Wars. Named by Richard Wagner as "the apotheosis of dance", Symphony No. 7 fascinates with both its rigorous classicism and its energy.

With its visceral, passionate gestural language, Mauro Bigonzetti's Cantata evokes rugged Mediterranean beauty and embraces the colours of the South. Instinctive and vital, the dance explores the multiple facets of relationships between men and women, from seduction and passion to quarrels and jealousy. The voices and music of the four on-stage singers draw the ten pairs of dancers into the festive working-class atmosphere of Southern Italy, to the sounds of the tambourine and castanets.

Cantata pays homage to Italian culture and its musical tradition. The piece is inspired by Italian music from the 18th and 19th centuries, from lullabies to the pizziche of Salento, and with a nod to Neapolitan serenades. This heritage comes to life on stage from the musicians and dancers to the sound of drums and the accordion. The choreography brings the dancers in a hectic, masterful, compelling, and infinitely complex movement, just as passionate relationships can be. An explosive cocktail, just like Mount Vesuvius in the Neapolitan imagination.

The tickets are available on the website, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. In addition to the introductory offer, which ends on 14 February, there are discounts available for the audience under 30 years of age, students, the unemployed and large families.
