In an airport, former lovers meet by chance and reconcile. The product of the second collaboration between Victor Quijada and director René-Pierre Bélanger, this choreography, set to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, was commissioned for the televised event marking Kent Nagano’s inaugural concert at the helm of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
