The Lovers is inspired by the stories of well known Shakespearean couples. It is a site-specific performance investigating the tortuous tensions which give spaces, relationships and events an erotic dimension and which become unexpected ground for love. A poetic, raw and sometimes grotesque exploration inside the human being, where sensuality can be grafted in the darkest passions, in the most difficult conditions or in the playful taste of pleasure.Read More
“Following the stunning international success of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the renowned British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon returns with a ballet every bit as lavishly imagined, boldly expressed and consummately entertaining as the earlier work. Turning again to a classic work of English literature for inspiration, Mr. Wheeldon has adapted The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare’s late romance that combines elements of fairy-tale, comedy, tragedy and fantasy, all of which the ballet embraces with the same inventive staging, astute characterization and precise emotional register for which the choreographer is so admired.” –description from the National Ballet websiteRead More

Romeo and Juliet. Names that seal the most timeless of love stories and that will bring together the D. Maria II and the Companhia Nacional de Bailado. At the helm, Rui Horta promises a modern-day take on this classic. This Romeo and Juliet is a sensual journey based loosely on Shakespeare, but faithful to the great questions that the Bard tackles: the irrationality of the human being in the face of love and death.
Quem pode caminhar para a frente quando o coração não o acompanha?
Romeu e Julieta, nomes intemporais. Nomes que marcaram tanto o teatro como a dança. Nomes que selam a mais intemporal das histórias de amor e que vão agora unir o D. Maria II à Companhia Nacional de Bailado. Ao leme, está Rui Horta que promete um olhar do nosso tempo sobre o clássico. Este Romeu e Julieta é uma viagem sensorial livremente inspirada em Shakespeare, mas fiel às grandes questões que esta aborda: a irracionalidade do ser humano perante o amor e a morte. Um exercício multidisciplinar entre a dança, o teatro, a música ao vivo, a arquitetura de cena e um tema, esse sim, imortal.Read More
