Programme
World PremiereChoreography: Douglas Lee, Filipe Portugal

The Corpus ballet evening focuses on the encounter between Ballett Zürich and our “Orchestra La Scintilla,” which performs on historical instruments. The successful choreographers Douglas Lee and Filipe Portugal embark on a musical journey, taking baroque compositions as their inspiration for the creation of world premieres.

After a successful career as First Soloist at Stuttgart Ballet, Douglas Lee has pursued a promising career as a choreographer that has taken him to the Nederlands Dans Theater, the Ballet of the Opéra du Rhin, and Ballett Zürich, among others. Here in Zurich, he impressed audiences most recently with his choreography entitled A-Life and Aria, a pas de deux. In his work, Douglas Lee frequently surprises audiences with at times extremely elaborate formations and highly virtuoso pairings.

Filipe Portugal has made a name for himself not only as a charismatic soloist at Ballett Zürich, but for some years has also pursued a choreographic career. He has developed expressive pas de deux as his trademark, and only last season he showcased these impressively in his choreography entitledDialogos. The musical direction of the evening will be in the hands of the English baroque specialist Christopher Moulds.
