Neumeier takes inspiration from the novel by Alexandre Dumas fils to extract its romantic essence and to convey the intimate tragedy of the heroine, Marguerite Gautier. With sumptuous ball scenes and sublime pas de deux, La Dame aux camélias is one of the greatest romantic ballets of the 20th century. The score by Chopin gives the work its inner character whilst Jürgen Rose manages to recreate the ambience of the era through his staging and costumes.
Three unique visions of dance and theatre are brought together for this programme. Choreographer in residence at the Stuttgart Ballet, then at the Nederlands Dans Theater, German choreographer Marco Goecke defines his work as a waking dream, his choreographic language being characterised by its avant-gardism and inventiveness. The Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg, who is also a cinema director, is known particularly for his film The Rain, an aquatic work in which dance aims to be delicate, light and sensitive. The two choreographers’ creations are followed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Faun duet, a melancholy embrace in homage to Vaslav Nijinski, which concludes this truly poetic and virtuoso programme.
Upon composing Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky takes inspiration from the legend of the immaculate bird to create some of the most beautiful music aver written for the ballet. When creating the choreography for this score in 1895, Marius Pepita created the myth of the dancer-swan, the ultimate ballerina. In 1984, Rudolf Noureev proposes a new version of this mythical ballet and chooses to give it a Freudian dimension, illuminating Thaikovsky’s poetic dream with a desperate profoundness.
When, in 1980, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker was working at Violin Phase in New York, one piece of music other than Steve Reich was played in the studio: the Concertos brandebourgeois by Bach. Thirty-five years later, the choreographer continues her work with this piece. A frequent visitor to the Palais Garnier stage, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker has been invited this season with her company Rosas, revealing highly coded choreographic writing which present Bach’s masterpieces
Originally from the Nederlands Dans Theater, these three very different choreographers are brought together through the same musicality and the same esthetic attention. Hans van Manen’s Trois Gnossiennes is paired to perfection with the sounds of the eponymous score by Erik Satie. Invited for the first time to work with the dancers of the Paris Opera House, the well-known duo Sol León and Paul Lightfoot have created two new repertoire pieces which offer alternations between static poses, rapid movement and theatrical figures.
Historically presented as a diptych in 18921, Iolanta and The Nutcracker by Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky are once again reunited in this superb production by Dmitri Tcherniakov, which offers and unified vision of opera and ballet. As the last lyrical work by the Russian composer, Iolanta, delicate and intimate, is performed by a formidable cast lead by Valentina Nafornita. The Nutcracker, an essential repertoire ballet had been conferred to 3 talented choreographers: Arthur Pita, Edouard Lock and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who propose a resolutely modern and stimulating interpretation.
A major choreographer of the 20th century, Mats Ek returns to the Paris national Opera with two highly anticipated creations, Boléro on the mythical score by Maurice Ravel and Another Place imagined around the Sonata in G major by Franz Liszt. His choreography, with broad, generous gestures overturns the rules of classic danse and invites not only the dancers but also the public to experience something unique.
Bringing together musicality, scenography and choreography, Tree of codes is an experimental and wholesome performance. Joining together dancers from the Wayne McGregor Company and the dancers of the Paris Opera House, this piece is the fruit of an artistic collaboration. This work plunges the audience into a confusing game of mirrors created by plastic artist Olafur Eliasson and a technopop acoustic atmosphere created by musician Jamie xx. Fluidity of movement and rhythmic pulsations are combined in perfect harmony.
