Following a first collaboration in November 2014, composing the music for Paulo Ribeiro‘s choreography Lídia, Luís Tinoco has written a new score for the CNB‘s latest production Carnival – a fantasy after Camille Saint-Saëns’ “The Carnival of the Animals”. This new production, with choreography by Victor Hugo Pontes and music direction by Cesário Costa, conducting the Portuguese Symphony Orchestra, gathers a group of 12 Portuguese composers that have written the music for separate tableaux to be interspersed with Saint-Saëns‘ work: Sérgio Azevedo, Carlos Caires, Eurico Carrapatoso, Andreia Pinto Correia, Nuno Corte-Real, Pedro Faria Gomes, Mário Laginha, João Madureira, Carlos Marecos, Daniel Schvetz, Luís Tinoco and António Pinho Vargas. The title for Tinoco’s contribution for this collaborative work is “Centaur – Chiron“.
Carnival will have its première on the 16th of June, 9.00 pm, at the Teatro Camões in Lisbon, and it will be followed by seven more performances on the 17th, 18th, 23rd, 24th, 25th (9.00 pm); and the 19th and 26th at 4.00 pm. Two more performances on the 1st (9.30 pm) and the 2nd (7.00 pm) of July are also scheduled for the Rivoli Theatre, in the city of Porto. Click here to know more.
