Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal Rouge | Closer | KosmosThursday, February 16 20177:30pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6:30pmBuyMembers $36 | Regular $39An internationally renowned contemporary dance company, BJM–Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal is a repertory company that presents a hybrid form of dance that combines the aesthetics of classical ballet and embraces many other different styles of dance. Founded in 1972 by Geneviève Salbaing, Eva von Gencsy and Eddy Toussaint, the company has pursued its own unique path over the decades. Very contemporary in its current approach, BJM performances are sexy, explosive, original and accessible, and its superb dancers are widely acclaimed. The term “jazz” in the name refers more to a “jazzing up” of classical ballet rather than a musical or dance style. BJM is one of Canada’s most popular dance companies. It has presented more than 2,000 performances in 66 countries to more than two million spectators, and is a veritable ambassador of Quebec and Canadian culture worldwide.Read more...
They will present three distinct pieces on the Capitol Theatre stage.
In this new work for BJM, the choreographer draws his inspiration from the world we live in, the frenetic pace of everyday urban life. His observations were the trigger for creating choreography inspired by the movements of crowds, moments of agitation, and the hustle and bustle of the city. Andonis searches for a counterbalance, bringing beauty to the fore and turning frenetic movement into a dance that brings people together in a joyous, liberating fashion. This is a dance based on clear movement, where a mingling clan of dancers must come to terms with the presence of others. Unlike the restrictions imposed by modern life, it is a moment for reconnecting, for releasing tensions, for coming together and letting go. Once again this work bears the distinctive BJM signature characterized by pure, festive energy, a celebration of humanity – its beauty and its creative force.
Set to composer Philip Glass’s MAD RUSH, the duet Closer was created in 2006 for Céline Cassone and Sébastien Marcovici (principal dancer with the New York City Ballet) and presented at the Maison de la Danse in Lyon, France. For BJM, the duet will be performed by the magnetic Céline Cassone and Alexander Hille. Performed and acclaimed on several world stages, Closer is a voluptuous and vibrant exchange, imbued with an intense yet simple sensuality, that of the tension between two bodies.
Over the course of twenty minutes, Céline is carried, pulled and lifted with movements of crystalline beauty and delicacy, rousing the sentiments of the audience, who are transported into the couple’s passionate relationship.
Enhancing the work is a live performance of Glass’s piano piece, MAD RUSH, reverberating throughout the hall, evoking the purity of the dancers’ emotions.
Based on original music by the brothers Grand, with a nod and a wink to traditional Amerindian music (throat singing, the sound of waves, the rustling wind, the cry of wild geese, rumbling thunder), this new piece for BJM by Rodrigo Pederneiras is an ode to resilience, a discreet tribute to Native peoples and their musical and cultural legacy. Underlying the work are themes of confrontation, the clash of cultures, power struggles between the dominant and the dominated, and what it means to belong to a community. Direct, genuine and raw, the dance is performed vigorously, at full throttle. The ensemble dances as a single entity, suggesting by the force of its impact the idea of escape or flight, a human migration, anxiety swelling with each new movement. Gathering momentum as they are carried away by the implacable rhythm of the music, the dancers convey drama and strength, a sense of urgency, of pain and separation, surging relentlessly toward a point of crisis until the excess of impulse and tension is exorcised, reaching at last a state of grace.

Following the sold out run of last year’s The Sound of Music, the Capitol Theatre will once again partner with the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra’s Tutta Musica to jointly stage a professional musical theatre production: the world-famous stage musical Oliver!
The collaboration of these two groups will once again see the production of musical theatre at its best: a fully professional production with actors, live orchestra, dancers, and technicians of both national and local acclaim.
Lionel Bart’s Oliver!
Is presented through special arrangement with Musical Theatre International (MTI)
The musical is based on the world-renowned Charles Dickens’ novel of the same name and chronicles the story of orphan Oliver Twist as he manoeuvres his way through the cruel streets of 19th century London. When he asks the question “Please sir, can I have some more” the plight of the poor is brought to the forefront and all the corruption, greed and heartlessness of English Society is exposed through this memorable story, featuring iconic characters and the iconic songs including Consider Yourself, You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two, and Oom-Pah-Pah. The movie version of Oliver! won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1968.
The BackYard Devils Opening act Tomato TomatoThursday, March 09 20177:30pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6:30pmBuyMembers $27 | Regular $29The Back Yard DevilsRead more...
After touring all over Canada and Europe, Moncton’s The BackYard Devils are back with their exciting blend of dirty country, bluegrass and rockabilly. They tell tales gathered on the road about shady characters, ramblers, heartbreaks, mischievous women, God, truck drivers and cowboys.
Erik Arsenault (vocals, acoustic guitar), Chris Belliveau (lead guitar, lap steel guitar), Dillon Robicheau (banjo, mandolin) and Rémi Arsenault (vocals, bass) deliver foot-stomping tunes, sing-along numbers, and boy, they do not disappoint! With a swinging guitar rhythm, doghouse bass slaps, smashing guitar solos and lightning quick banjo and mandolin lines, The BackYard Devils managed to hammer down their own sound in an old fashion style.
Tomato/Tomato is comprised of husband and wife team John and Lisa McLaggan. This quirky twosome performs a mix of old timey bluegrass, roots, and folk music, with a modern lyrical twist. Their dynamic live performances feature John on vocals and guitar and Lisa on vocals, wash-board, tin cans bass drum, and tambourine (all at once!).
High energy foot stompers, laid back swing, and traditional folk permeate their set list, but no matter what genre enters the picture, the end result is a signature sound that is undeniably Tomato/Tomato.
Half Moon RunFriday, March 10 20178pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes7:30pmBuy39.50Honesty is the fabric of all our interpersonal relationships. It’s the levelling light that removes us from concealment and obscurity. For Half Moon Run, it’s been crucial to every step they’ve taken together. They never laboured under the notion that they would be successful musicians in a touring band. Nevertheless, when they formed in Montreal in 2009, multi-instrumentalists Devon Portielje, Conner Molander and Dylan Phillips abandoned every backup plan because they weren’t prepared to sacrifice their uncommon chemistry. Instinct and faith led them to create their astonishingly accomplished debut album Dark Eyes, released in 2012 (2013 in the UK).Read more...
Sun Leads Me On, is the process of coming into being in the quest for beauty and honesty. For the three founding members—and for fellow multi-instrumentalist Isaac Symonds, who joined the band during the early touring for Dark Eyes—it materialised after months of creative frustration. After two years of relentless gigging, they got back to Montreal in late 2014 only to realise they were “oversaturated with each other and the band,” says Isaac. It was only through brute force and determination that they ultimately overcame the mental challenge of effectively starting over.
“Sun Leads Me On came from a place that felt a little bit like being underwater,” says Dylan. “We kept powering through because ultimately we knew it was worth it. We had this beautiful thing, this wonderful chance, but we were also working our way through a lot of darkness, losing lots of friends, struggles at home, losing our sense of home, trying to let the music guide us but having trouble even finding that. There was a lot of strife in it all, but at the same time the sun just kept pulling us forward, and we just kept powering through and trying to find beauty in what we do.”

Vienna Boys ChoirSunday, March 19 20177pmOpening doors time / heure d’ouverture des portes6pmBuyMembers $55 | Regular $59The quintessential boys’ choir has a long tradition:Read more...
Boys have been singing at Vienna’s Imperial Chapel since 1296. In 1498, Maximilian I moved his court to Vienna and instructed there were to be six singing boys among his musicians. This marked the foundation of what is known today as the Vienna Boys Choir. Over the centuries, the Viennese Court attracted musicians like Mozart, Salieri, and Bruckner; Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn and Franz Schubert were themselves choristers. The Chapel Imperial always travelled with the Emperor. Today, touring is part of the chorister’s education.
Since 1926, the Vienna Boys Choir has undertaken around 1000 tours in 97 different countries; in that time, the boys have sung more than 27,000 concerts.
There are currently 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. They give around 300 concerts each year, attended by almost half a million spectators around the world.
Together with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vienna State Opera Chorus, the boys provide the music for the Sunday Mass in the Imperial Chapel, as they have done since 1498. The Vienna Boys Choir can also be seen (and heard!) in the choir’s own concert hall. Acclaimed director Curt Faudon has created four films with the Choir. The first, Silk Road: Songs Along the Road and Time (2009) featured never before seen performances around the world and exclusive behind the scenes access. Songs for Mary, a biography of the Virgin Mary in 21 motets and songs followed in 2013. In 2015 they released Bridging the Gap – the Power of Singing and Good Shepherds. Also in 2015, the Choir entered a long-term partnership with Universal Music – Deutsche Grammophon; the first release was a holiday recording, Merry Christmas From Vienna.
