A multilayered work, the avant garde La Stravaganza juxtaposes 17th-century sensibility with modern culture while contrasting classical and electronic accompaniment.
Contemporary culture meets 17th-century society in this 1997 Diamond Project ballet created for an ensemble of twelve dancers — Angelin Preljocaj’s first work for NYCB. With excerpts from Vivaldi as well as electronic music for the score, La Stravaganza merges fantasy and reality, a hallmark of the French choreographer’s style. The director of Ballet Preljocaj, based in Aix-en-Provence, Preljocaj has since made a second work for the Company, Spectral Evidence, which premiered at the 2013 Fall Gala.
