Hoperais a dreamlike journey in the melodies of famous Bel Canto. The choreography is composed of a high energy movement language that is drawn from different genres and styles. Sprinkled with gestural plots, nonsense and a touch of madness, the arias by Verdi, Leoncavallo, Rossini, Handel and Mozart are re-interpreted in the dance piece with a new perspective that is filled with subtle humour and youthful vigour. Tradition and innovation are knitted nicely together and make this work appealing to audience both young and old.
