Arcangelo is a reflection on heaven and hell. It is based on the marvelous Concerti Grossiof the Italian Arcangelo Corelli, ending with an aria from Scarlatti’s opera Il Primo Omicidio. 

Duato has basically employed the lentos and adagios in a different order from the original. The ballet tells us of the search for liberation through death, as a way of access to a paradise that frees us. Arcangelo Corelli began his career as a violinist at the age of seven in the Bolonia of 1670. He was recognized as an elite instrumentalist, as well as one of the most influential composers of his time. Most of his life was spent in Rome, where he died in 1713. The genere of the concerti grossi developed simultaneously in several places during the first three decades of the 17th century. At that time, the production of stage music was extremely important. Orchestras with more than a hundred musicians were commonplace. To relieve the evident lack of mobility of such numerous groups, the first performers within the string sections broke away and formed a more flexible group: the Concertino. The concerto grosso is derived from the alternation of both groups. Corelli may well be defined as the creator of the classical concerto grosso form. What particularly distinguish these concerti grossi from a string orchestra are the classical equilibrium of the baroque music, the marvelous clarity and simplicity of plot and structure, and the complete congruency of form and content.
