“Having live orchestra music is the standard for ballets performances. It is definitely an important element that enhances the performance and brings new meaning for our audiences,” says Mr. Janek Schergen, artistic director.
“We must constantly endeavor to add artistic depth and quality in every area of our performances, thus we keep setting the goals higher and bringing the best production we can offer.”
Ms. Kwok Min Yi, who will dance the role of Odette/Odile, says, “Dancing to a live orchestra is very different from dancing to recorded music. Every performance will be different as the musicians play differently every time. Having a live orchestral accompaniment always excites me; we have been (dancing) to recorded music but now every performance has surprises.”
