St. Pölten Festspielhaus | Großer Saal

Instrumentation

  • Acosta Danza, dance company
  • Paul Murphy, conductor

Programmes

He’s an exceptional dancer, the former star soloist of the Royal Ballet, a choreographer, author and Director of the company he founded in 2015, Acosta Danza from Cuba: Carlos Acosta celebrates 30 on stage as a unique artist. The programme ‘Carlos Acosta – A Celebration’ will be seen for the very first time in a German-speaking country at Festspielhaus St. Poelten.  The evening opens with Alexis Fernández’ ‘De Punta a Cabo’, to which Debussy’s ‘L’Après-midi d’un faune’ – performed live by the Tonkünstler Orchestra – provides an exciting contrast in Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s ‘Fauno’. Christopher Bruce has chosen recordings by the Rolling Stones for his creation ‘Rooster’ and the climax of the evening’s four part programme is George Bizet’s ‘Carmen’ in the version originally choreographed by Carlos Acosta for the Royal Ballet. To the accompaniment of the Tonkunstler conducted by Paul Murphy there is a rare chance to see the Artistic Director himself perform with the ensemble in the role of Escamillo.
