Dance illuminates the Milan Expo

After the great success at Expo Shanghai back in 2010, Caracalla Dance Theatre returns to Expo Milano 2015 with its renewed production of the tale of One Thousand and One nights in the ballet “KanYaMakan” choreographed to the music of Rimsky Korsakov and the Bolero de Ravel.


The Italian audience has always welcomed Caracalla Dance Theater, from the “Circuito de Sicilia” to the “Meeting” in Rimini and now the anticipated performance at Expo Milano 2015.


It’s serendipity that this Ballet will be performed at the Milan Expo as the idea of the creation of this production arose in Italy over 15 years ago when Maestro Franco Zeffirelli suggested to his guest Maestro Caracalla to use western masterpieces and re-orchestrate them with oriental instruments.


This advice was put into action, and the re-orchestration of Kettelbey’s “Persian market”, Ravel’s infamous “Bolero” and Korsakov’s “Sheherazade” came to life at Caracalla Dance Theater with a flare of the mysterious orient.


On September 23rd 2015 the members of the Caracalla Dance Theater traveled to Milan in collaboration with the Ministry of Economy, and held a one night only performance on September 26th, where a dialogue of cultures and civilization happened, and Lebanon represented with art, colors, culture and beauty.
