The critically-acclaimed Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada (ABTC) will present its production Amadeus at Moncton’s Capitol Theatre (811 Main Street) on Friday, October 5 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are currently on sale at the Capitol Box-Office. This event is brought to you by Delta Beauséjour. The Capitol Theatre’s 2012-2013 season is presented by Molson M.
Choreographed by Igor Dobrovolskiy, Artistic Director of the ABTC, Amadeus is a gripping work exploring envy, greed and isolation. The glorious music of Mozart and Salieri is interwoven with a spell-binding plot and larger-than-life characters. This riveting story traces the life of Mozart and examines his isolation by a society that accepts the musical works but not the composer.
Amadeus, like the music which inspired its choreographer, is finely balanced and beautifully paced. It touches on some of Igor Dobrovolskiy’s recurring themes: isolation, envy, and the solitary life of the outsider. Mr. Dobrovolskiy stretches out time and motion as if carefully measuring the moments left in Mozart’s short life. Narrative and choreography present a subtle dialectic of endless movement which begins with the relentless tick, tick, tick of the metronome and ends with the soundless rushing of the sands of time.
Amadeus was choreographed by Igor Dobrovolskiy with the music of Mozart. Lighting design is by Pierre Lavoie and the costume and set design by Michael Eagan.
