A trip to Tuscany with Tours en l'air
National Ballet of Canada Principal Dancers Guillaume Côté & Zdenek Konvalina are co-choreographing a new ballet, Impermanence, for the prestigious Maggio Musicale Fiorentino festival in Florence. Both will be performing in the piece, which is set to music composed by Guillaume, and has designs by Zdenek. The world premiere is on May 18th, and you can be part of it and support two of our most popular dancers. Tours en l'air is teaming up with A Perfect Tour, which has over ten years of experience organizing tours in Tuscany, to offer a week (May 15 – 22) in a Tuscan villa, with escorted visits to Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano, the Chianti countryside, and Cinque Terre on Italy's riviera on the Ligurian coast. Highlights include tours of Tuscan estates producing olive oil and wines, along with a traditional Tuscan cooking class. A performance of Mozart's Abduction from the Seraglio is also a possibility. Numbers are limited, so if this trip appeals to you, please let us know now and we will get back to you as soon as the package price and brochure are finalized.
