"Rarely do we have the privilege to witness such excellence."
- Midi-Libre (France)
Since 1972, Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal has been internationally known as one of Canada’s most radiant and energetic companies. BJM will makes its Portland debut with a program featuring acclaimed Canadian choreographer Aszure Barton’s Les Chambres des Jacques, a delightfully eccentric work set to the captivating music of Quebec folk songs, klezmer and Vivaldi; and renowned Italian choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti’s Rossini Cards, a sumptuous choreographic feast paying tribute to the operatic genius behind The Barber of Seville and William Tell.
