Dance me on and on
Esteemed ballet company Les Grand Ballets Canadiens put on a shimmering display celebrating the union of dance and love in this season closer set to some of late singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen's most cherished songs on the matter.
The talented company will be joined in this tribute by the 60 piece children's choir Les Petits Chanteur du Mont-Royal.
The sound of Leonard Cohen
Musically, Cohen's early songs were based in folk music, in terms of both melody and instrumentation; from the 1970s, though, his work begins to show the influence of various types of popular and cabaret music. Since the 1980s he typically sung in a deep bass register, accompanied by synthesisers and female backing vocals. His most famed works, Hallelujah, Suzanne and of course, Dance Me To The End of Love are among some of the most inspiring and beautiful meditations on love of the 20th Century.
