'The OBC dances Ravel' returns to L'Auditori de Barcelona with choreography and stage direction by Antonio Ruz

The Barcelona Symphony Orchestra resumes its activity with the general public with its family show The OBC dances Ravel. It is an offering by the Educational Project of L'Auditori de Barcelona that features the stage direction and choreography of the winner of the National Dance Award, Antonio Ruz.

The show, with musical direction by Zoi Tsokanou, uses the music and story of Ma mère l'oye (Mother Goose), one of the most spectacular and representative symphonic works from Maurice Ravel’s oeuvre. Based around this music, a group of dancers will interpret some of the best-known children’s stories of all time, such as Beauty and the Beast, Hop-o’-My-Thumb and Sleeping Beauty.

Antonio Ruz has developed a show in which he seeks forms of dialogue between dance, stage language and live music. This will be made possible by a dance routine that the children have worked on at school and at home and will all be dancing together at the end of the concert. You can see the video in this tutorial.

The first to be able to enjoy The OBC dances Ravel were the school children who saw the show on 2, 3 and 4 December. On Saturday 5 December at 12.30 pm it will open to the general public.

The Saturday concert can be viewed live on L'Auditori Digital and, in the coming days, it will be offered free of charge to schools so that those who have not been able to come to L'Auditori de Barcelona, can enjoy the show.
