ALIEN 

NEW BRUNSWICK TOUR 

February 8, Tracadie

ALIEN is an intimate exploration of the human side of immigration. As a newcomer to Canada in 2000, Igor understands well the many challenges that new immigrants face when they leave their home in search of new life.

AMADEUS: PART OF THE MONCTON & FREDERICTON SEASON

February 4, Capitol Theatre Moncton
February 27, Playhouse Theatre Fredericton

A gripping work exploring envy, greed and isolation. The glorious music of Mozart and Salieri is interwoven with a spellbinding plot and larger-than-life characters. This riveting story traces the life of Mozart and examines his isolation by a society that accepts the musical works but not the composer. Amadeus, like the music which inspired its choreographer, is finely balanced and beautifully paced. It touches on some of Igor Dobrovolskiy’s recurring themes: isolation, envy, and the solitary life of the outsider.

RAVEL BOLERO & VIVALDI’S FOUR SEASONS WITH SYMPHONY NB

May 5, Imperial Theatre Saint John
May 6, Playhouse Theatre Fredericton
