Northrop Presents Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal

Date: 
Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - 7:30pm

The Prince of Popo is bored beyond belief. The Princess of Pipi wants to run away. Meanwhile, the King boogies about a court of pompous aristocrats. Christian Spuck’s full-length comic ballet is a deliciously playful romp that takes Georg Buchner’s satirical play to a whole new level of visual entertainment. Sprinkled with mime, buffoonery, disco, and a little goth glamor, Leonce and Lena has all the skill and wonder of classic ballet, without any stuffiness. Thunderous applause greeted its Montreal premiere. Only Minneapolis and Chicago audiences will get to see this first US tour.

“Everything about the production is delightful and playful. The story is charming, the dancing riveting, the orchestration well-chosen, and the costumes and sets spot on.”
– Montreal Rampage
