Tonight at 8.00 pm CET, the ballet Vivaldi Suite by choreographer Michele Merola will be broadcast in free streaming on the YouTube channel of the Opera di Roma.
Merola is making his debut with the Rome Opera Ballet and is using seven dancers from the company, including principal dancer Claudio Cocino, who will dance to the music of the “red priest”. Costumes are by Anna Biagiotti, scenery is by Andrea Miglio and lighting by Fabrizio Marinelli.
Vivaldi Suite is a tribute to our Italian Baroque. It has no narrative but through dance and video projections it pays homage to the desire of all of us to return to being free to meet others.
