NOTES ON THE PERFORMANCE

 

Exploring the intriguing personality and literary oeuvre of one of the most original twentieth-century writers, Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works makes its debut at La Scala. Inspired by three renowned novels, as well as letters, essays and diaries by Virginia Woolf, the emotional impact and energy of this powerful work has earned McGregor the Critics’ Circle Award for Best Classical Choreography and his second Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production. Following its extraordinary success at the Royal Ballet, the production is eagerly awaited at La Scala, as is its protagonist, Alessandra Ferri, whose performance in this intensely emotive role earned her her second Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance in 2016. On the podium Koen Kessels for an inedit collaboration with La Scala Ballet Company. He conducted the creation of the ballet at the Royal Opera House of London in 2015.
