Giacomo Casanova is arguably the world’s most legendary womanizer, but he was also an intellect, a gambler, and a scofflaw – all the right character traits around which to design a lusty ballet, which is exactly what choreographer Kenneth Tindall has done. Tindall, a former principal dancer is a Freelance award winning Choreographer and Director specializing in Narrative Dance. His Casanova offers a larger-than-life ballet experience like none other thanks to opulent dance underscored by sexual tension generated by composer Kerry Muzzey’s attention-grabbing music. Guest Conductor Julian Pellicano returns to lead Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra as it performs live music for this production.
Set in 18th-century Venice, Italy, Tindall’s lavish vision includes iconic venetian masquerades, period costumes and sets along with big, big choreography that tells the story of how Casanova’s plans for a career in Holy Orders got derailed by his own decadence.
Created in the UK, this award-winning production has not yet been seen in North America, but its tour here is made possible through a collaboration between Orlando Ballet, Colorado Ballet and Milwaukee Ballet. Says Artistic Director Jorden Morris, “This is the future of making big, expensive, lavish ballets more accessible to the public as a compliment to the standard classics already available.”
