A Summer of Dance, 10 – 19 Jul 2013

Overview

From 10 to 12 July, on the same evening, audiences can rediscover Jean-Christophe Maillot’s “Vers un Pays Sage” (“Towards a Wise Country”) and “Shéhérazade.” The first ballet is the choreographer’s generous, enthusiastic tribute to his father, the painter Jean Maillot.

With “Shéhérazade,” Jean-Christophe MAILLOT offers a ballet with a taste of the Orient, for which the gilded splendor of the Salle Garnier is a perfect setting. Echoing the endless wave-like motions of Rimsky-Korsakov’s score, this ballet seems to have come straight from the tales of the Thousand and One Nights.

From 17 to 19 July, a program of three different works will offer the audience an opportunity to experience a wide range of emotions. Rondo, by the Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman, a rhythmic work bursting with energy and inventiveness; Blind Willow, by the Norwegian choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen, a poetic, touching work that explores the balance of the body through a stage set based on light and dark effects; Arithmophobia, a new work by Jeroen Verbruggen, who is also a young dancer from the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, will invite the spectator to reflect on the fear of numbers and the end of the world.
