Atalanta Fugiens

Piccolo Teatro Studio Melato / at 05:00 PM


The symphony was an extraordinary workshop for the semantic re-elaboration of musical genres of the past and, in particular, of court dances. This program traces the evolution of minuets, jigs, sicilianas, allemandes and gavottes as they underwent sublimation from “choreography of bodies” to “choreography of the soul”.
