Riccardo NovaIn Nice, on 21st November, the Théâtre National hosts the French premiere of the ballet Ipnos with music by Riccardo Nova and Olivier Messiaen. The corps de ballet of the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala will perform it with choreography by Davide Bombana. The ballet depicts the resonances and sensations aroused by one’s sense of smell, underlining its most sensual characteristics. The harmonies have an openness and elemental quality which, as Nova underlines, “allows the dancers space for a slow and sensual expressiveness in emphatic contrast to the inharmonic complexity of sound which by now is an integral part of contemporary musical expression”.
