Dance: Swan Lake

Cultural, Dance in Sainte-Maxime

À partir de :  20 Full-fare
  • Angelin Preljocaj writes a new chapter in the history of classical ballet, making his own the dramatic story of Prince Siegfried and Odette, the woman-swan with devastating charm… Respecting the original work, he reinvents Swan Lake with his abundant imagination, his mastery of the precision of gesture and movement. Always at the crossroads of styles.

    Sailing through the rich waters of the repertoire, Angelin Preljocaj plunges into the illustrious classical ballet Swan Lake, a thousand times created and a thousand times reinvented! Following in the footsteps of Blanche Neige, Roméo et Juliette or La Fresque, the most famous of the French choreographers returns to narrative ballet as his appetite for stories, literature, tales or painting is lively. He makes his own the myth of the swan dancer by mixing Tchaikovsky’s musical masterpiece with more contemporary, quasi-atmospheric arrangements, by inventing a ballet-fairy as intriguing as it is solar.

    Between dream and reality, fabricated and mental images, duets and choral dance, the piece fascinates the eyes with the perfect alchemy of classical ballet and contemporary dance. From one act to another, in staggering sets, there are no less than 26 performers, all dazzling, transformed by skillful costume games, from sweatshirt and sneakers to the inevitable immaculate tutu.

    Spectacular fantasmatic images that hint at some nods to the original work of Marius Petitpa, whose dramaturgy he revisits, as a final tribute of the student to the master.
