THE BULL ON THE ROOF

1994

A whirlwind of rhythms that allows for different readings of a work that demonstrates the natural musicality of Brazilian people. The peculiarity of this composition
is that it was written by the French musician Darius Milhaudwho lived in Brazil in the 1910s.

Rare composers have so well known how to portray the grandiosity of our music. This curious title, both of the music and of the ballet, is inspired by a march
very popular carnavalesca at that time. The original version of "O Boi no Telhado" was premiered in Paris in 1920 and achieved resounding success.
