The Guggenheim’s Works and Process presents The National Ballet of Canada: Orpheus Alive by Robert Binet and Missy Mazzoli
Choreographed by Robert Binet, Choreographic Associate of the National Ballet of Canada, and featuring a commissioned score by acclaimed composer Missy Mazzoli, Orpheus Alive is a story of love, loss, and an extraordinary artist facing the limits of his mortality. National Ballet dancers Heather Ogden, Jenna Savella, Harrison James, Spencer Hack, and Sonia Rodriguez will perform excerpts with pianist Andrei Streliaev and the Mivos Quartet, and New York City Ballet Associate Artistic Director Wendy Whelan moderates the discussion with writer and dramaturg Rosamund Small, Binet, and Mazzoli before the ballet’s world premiere in Toronto.
