Swan Lake – November

One of the central works of the classical ballet canon, and one of the most enduringly resonant and deeply affecting of all works of theatrical art, Swan Lake has enthralled audiences since its premiere in Moscow in 1877. Set to a timeless and famously evocative score by Tchaikovsky, the ballet is marked by a thematic and stylistic dynamism that embraces the fantastic and mythic while remaining rooted in the most universal of human emotions.

Swan Lake retains the captivating, 19th-century fairy-tale quality of the ballet while grounding the narrative in a richly suggestive earthiness that accentuates the tension between the sensual and the ethereal, the natural and the supernatural. The emotional and thematic complexities that are revealed in choreographer James Kudelka’s re-telling of the story are heightened and complemented by Santo Loquasto’s exquisite and vibrant sets and costumes, both conveying the ballet’s tragic beauty and powerful effect with consummate artistry.

David Bowie Is

Straight from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, North America’s debut of hit exhibition includes culture icon’s original stage costumes, instruments, album art and music videos.

This fall the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) offers North America its first chance to take an exciting odyssey through the world of pioneering artist David Bowie—musician, performer and style icon—in the acclaimed exhibition David Bowie is, direct from the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London, England. Spanning five decades and featuring more than 300 objects from Bowie’s personal archive, the multi-media show exposes the groundbreaking artist’s collaborations in the fields of fashion, sound, theatre, art and film. David Bowie is will open on Sept. 25, 2013 and runs to Nov. 27, 2013, giving Toronto two full months to live the experience. The AGO is the exhibition’s first stop on its world tour.

Acclaimed by the New York Times as “united in sound and vision in a way rarely seen in a museum,” David Bowie is marks the first international exhibition devoted to the British-born musician and performer (born David Robert Jones in 1947), who has sold more than 140 million albums to date throughout his genre-defying career. Organized thematically, the show immerses visitors in a spectacular and interactive trip through Bowie’s numerous personae and legendary performances, with particular attention paid to his artistic influences. His experiments with Surrealism, German Expressionism, Music Hall, mime and Japanese Kabuki performance are all explored in an explosion of colour, light and sound.
