Soirée de Ballets
With more than eighty works to his credit, Thierry Malandain developed a very personal vision of dance. Deeply linked to the concept of “Ballet” as an aesthetic movement, he gives priority to the dancing body and the celebration of its sensuality and humanity. To put it in the own words of Thierry Malandain: It is a light-hearted, bubbly ballet intended as a moment of humanity to forget for a short while our tough, worried existence, saddened by all that our heart and reason cannot accept. It is a ballet leading to the tenderest emotions. And even if it veers towards melancholy, even if the shivers of death run through it, the richness of its poetry will give the charm of all that ends well, just the way one enjoys the last drink, the last ray of the sun, the last song. Featuring the choreographies L’Après-midi d’un faune; Le Spectre de la rose; Une Dernière chanson.

Interweaving the fantastic and the natural , Jean-Christophe Maillot constantly amazes us throughout this exceptional dance piece.
