Donna Winter (for Cullberg Ballet)

Cullbergbaletten performed at The Nobel Banquet in Stockholm City Hall on The Nobel Day, 10 December 2017. The laureates, the royal family, and other invited guests attended the banquet that was broadcasted to an audience of one million in Sweden. Cullbergbaletten performed together with Musica Vitae, Malin Broman and Lisa Långbacka. Choreography by Norwegian choreographer Ludvig Daae, with music by Lisa Långbacka and Antonio Vivaldi.

“With this piece, I want to emphasize the joy of winter in Scandinavia. Even though it is freezing cold, and at times exhausting, life goes on during these darkest months. So does the dance in this new piece. As it moves through and on top of the melancholy and harshness of winter, it insists on energy and light”, says Ludvig Daae, choreographer.
