This Saturday sees two consecutive performances featuring some of the biggest names in classical ballet in an initiative by IBStage.
IBStage is an international programme whose main mission is to promote classical ballet and serve as a platform for emerging talent in the world of dance through the organization of competitions for up-and-coming dancers and by bringing them into contact with some of the biggest names in the field. For four years, IBStage worked in Italy, and for the last four years it has had a base in Barcelona, and part of its program is to bring everything that is done in schools to where dance is supposed to be: the stage. To that end, it organizes high-level galas in which dancers from all over the world come together in the summer season to show off their skills and the beauty of classical ballet.
In September there will be two performances as part of the Grec Festival, but before that, as a kind of aperitif, we will have the chance to attend two Al setembre hi haurà dues funcions al Teatre Grec, però abans, com una mena d’aperitiu, també hi ha two galas at the Liceu at 5pm and 9pm on Saturday 22 July featuring figures like Lauren Cuthbertson (prima ballerina at the Royal Ballet), Kristina Shapran (of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg) and other performers from the Ballet de Catalunya, the Vienna Opera and the Stuttgart Ballet.
The programme features classical ballet favourites like ‘Sylvia’ (Leo Delibes), Le Corsaire (Adolphe Adam) and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (Prokofiev), together with a selection of contemporary ballet pieces by composers like Joby Talbot and Boris Asafyev, with choreographies by Wayne McGregor and Marius Petipa.
