THE SEASONS

With Jolt Dance and Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

ABOUT

Inspiring, moving and joyful—the Jolt dancers should be compulsory viewing.” – The Press

German-born British composer Max Richter takes us on a journey through his re-imagined landscape of Vivaldi’s pictorial masterpiece The Four Seasons. “The Four Seasons is something we all carry around with us,” says Richter.

“It’s just everywhere. This project is about reclaiming this music for me personally, by getting inside it and rediscovering it—and taking a new path through a well-known landscape.”

Dancers from inclusive dance company Jolt join together with musicians of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra to create a highly evocative and memorable performance. Led by acclaimed violinist Martin Riseley, this performance is a joyous and affirming celebration of life.
