Theatre Productions On Stage at the Jubilee for Contact East 2005!

AMADEUS
Monday, October 17th / 9:00 A.M. / Jubilee Theatre
The Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada is a professional touring company of high artistic standard. Their newest full-length ballet AMADEUS, is a gripping work exploring envy, greed and isolation. Conceived and choreographed by Igor Dobrovolskiy, with bold costume and set design by Michael Eagan, AMADEUS blends the music of Mozart and Salieri with a spellbinding


plot and larger-than-life characters. This masterful story traces Mozart?s life through his music, and depicts his inability to connect with a society that accepts his musical creations but not the composer. Dobrovolskiy vividly intertwines human drama with dynamic choreography. This is an innovative interpretation of the life of a brilliant artist. This full-length showcase will be held on Monday, October 17th at 9:00 A.M. at the Jubilee Theatre.
