NAC Commission

This landmark NAC Commission pairs three of Canada’s outstanding choreographic talents with three of the country’s most exciting composers. Ballet BC’s trail-blazing Emily Molnar meets her musical match with innovative composer Nicole Lizée. Alberta Ballet’s eminent and prolific Jean Grand-Maître joins forces with multiple award-winning new music visionary Andrew Staniland; and Guillaume Côté, gifted dancer and choreographic associate with the National Ballet of Canada, is perfectly paired with noted emerging composer Kevin Lau.

Three remarkable new one-act ballets, each with an original orchestral score, will be performed en première by dozens of dazzling dancers together with the National Arts Centre Orchestra under the baton of music director Alexander Shelley. An unprecedented event to mark Canada’s sesquicentennial!
