Baden-Baden: Boito: Mefistofele
Playing Mefistofele as a mixture of Latin lover, prankster, and demon in Gounod’s Faust opera, Erwin Schrott has already given Festspielhaus audiences a taste of his greatness. Arrigo Boito combines influences of Verdi and Wagner in his musical work.
Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker from a different point of view – very refreshing, very unusual, very hip hop. This is what the French choreographer Bouba Landrille Tchouda makes out of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s romantic and moving composition.
Coppelia is the most classic of the French Ballets. Created in 1870 at the Opera de Paris, it fed on the evolution of the society and on the choregrapher's imagination. Here is a "sparkling" version modernized and pacey. The action takes place in the America of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Jérôme Robbins. Style and spirit of the musicals of Broadway, Hollywood fantasy... and 40 dancers!
A Year Later
This one-act play, written specifically for this renowned pair of actors, retells 30 years from two lives. The text, an original piece by Tony Laudadio, uses fragments to recompose, in 30 flashes from 30 days (one day per year), the story of two people who work in the same office, and are forced to permanently share the same physical place.
A Piece of Plastic
German avant-garde theater brings us “A Piece of Plastic”, playing upon the premise of family as artificial as the theater. A fast-moving play that takes place between slamming doors and that bitterly criticizes society with an acid sense of humor. Our cameras take everything in with settings that bring us closer to the most dizzying expressions.
A Swan Lake
Choreographer Alexander Ekman filled the Main Stage at the Oslo Opera House with 5,000 liters of water. In A Swan Lake, his new full-length work created for the Norwegian National Ballet, the dancers are joined on stage by actors, a soprano, musicians and 1,000 rubber ducks.
