Peter Salem has composed the score to The National Ballet of Canada’s new ballet ‘Emma Bovary’, choreographed by Helen Pickett. The ballet will have its World premiere on the 11th November at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto.
‘The world premiere of Emma Bovary marks an exciting first partnership between The National Ballet of Canada and award-winning choreographer, director and dancer, Helen Pickett. Pickett combines a striking physical vocabulary with sensitivity to the human condition, and she is breaking new ground in narrative ballet. Emma Bovary is a psychological exploration of the lead character from Gustave Flaubert’s 19th-century novel, Madame Bovary, his influential depiction of a young woman disillusioned by life.’
