Moving With The Opera

Dance has been a part of opera since its beginnings in the 17th century. But “the biggest difference between choreographing for an opera and a concert dance is not time or money — it’s the role of the choreographer. ‘Your goal is to realize the director’s vision, not your own. Different art forms have more in common than people think. What makes good opera also makes good dance — structure and the ability to tell a story.”
