Stabat MATER | Ivan Cavallari’s First Production for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens as Artistic Director

Ivan Cavallari is the new artistic director of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and this is his first production.  You better believe that he is going to make it memorable!


“From the outset, I invite you to discover a dual program consisting of Stabat MATER, of the Romanian choreographer Edward Clug, and as a counterpoint to this a romantic and touching piece, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, choreographed by Uwe Scholz.

Dramatic, touching and spiritual, the dual programming for the show is set to move you.

Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater is a masterpiece from Italian Baroque period and his most celebrated work.

The second program, Beethoven’s 7th symphony, continues to be one of the most acclaimed classical pieces of all time.  The music is set to immerse you into an engaging performance.

Each choreographer for their respective show has their own style and particularities.  Having a dual performance as a  season-opening for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens is an excellent way to start off the season with a bang! Of course, having talented, hand-picked dancers is a crucial element to the success of the production.  Nonetheless, the orchestra which features up to 70 musicians and excellent soloists has been playing a significant role in the company’s success for more than 30 years.


Performances occur from October 11th to October 28th, 2017, at Maisonneuve Theatre located at Place des Arts.  For more information and to buy tickets, click here.  With tickets starting at 34$, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to experience Montreal’s newest Italian artistic director.
