I Capuleti e i Montecchi

 Thursday 29th September 2022
 7.15 pm

In Vincenzo Bellini's opera, Romeo and Juliet's love story is now more sombre: the quarrel between the two families has become a veritable war. 

The opera also resurrects a scene that Shakespeare omitted: when Juliet awakens in the tomb, the two lovers are permitted a brief exchange before succumbing to eternal sleep.

A love transcended by Bellini's tender, dreamlike score, and set by Robert Carsen in a refined decor.

Salomé

 Thursday 27th October 2022 - Live
 7.45 pm

King Herod’s stepdaughter, Salome, princess of Judea, finds palace life dreary. Her curiosity is roused when she hears the voice of Jochanaan, a prophet held prisoner by Herod : Salome is ready to do anything to possess him, dead or alive.

The hypnotic dance of the seven veils is in itself sufficient to capture the fatal mounting desire that suffuses this work, whose orchestration is as rich as it is modern.

"Le Parc" by Angelin Preljocaj

In UGC cinemas:
 Thursday 6th October and Thursday 13th October 2022
 7.30

Angelin Preljocaj finds a subtle balance between the classical genius of Mozart’s music and the modernity of his choreographic language. 

Advancing to the caprices of an imaginary Carte du Tendre, the dancers awaken to love, from first encounters to seduction, from timidity to attraction, from resistance to the sweet appeal of abandon in sublimely soaring “pas de deux”.

Who cares? is a suite of dances to songs by George and Ira Gershwin - including the “classic” that gives the piece its name and I Got Rhythm - against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.

Ballet Impérial is a tribute to the grandeur of Imperial Russia, to Tchaikovsky’s Second Piano Concerto. A work in which George Balanchine brilliantly celebrates the technical virtuosity of academic ballet in the style of Petipa,and the great St Petersburg tradition.

Hamlet

Thursday 30th March 2023 - Live
7.15 pm

Ambroise Thomas' opera is based on the adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous play by Alexandre Dumas père.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, is haunted by existential questions – To be or not to be –, the ghost of his murdered father and his doomed love for Ophelia.

A milestone of opera for which Krzysztof Warlikowski, ever fathoming the depths of the human psyche, redraws the Shakespearean contours.

Soirée Maurice Béjart

 Thursday 25th March 2023 - Live
 7.45 pm

This programme presents three works initially created during the seventies, by the choreographer who died fifteen years ago.

For The Firebird, an ode to youth written for the company’s dancers, the choreographer took up Stravinsky’s powerful score bringing out its quintessence. 

Le Chant du compagnon errant, written for two male dancers, is an intimate work to a song cycle by Mahler.

Finally, the mythical Boléro espouses Ravel’s eponymous score. Surrounded by dancers, alone on a table, the principal performer – male or female – is transported by the voluptuous rhythms into an erotic and hypnotic dance that is like a vibrant call to life.

Roméo et Juliette de Charles Gounod

 Monday 26th June 2023 - Live
 7.15 pm

Charles Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette enjoyed immediate popularity. Four love duets, a fiery waltz and luminous, lyrical music: the entire score seems to tremble with desire and freshness.

Who better than Thomas Jolly, one of the most inventive directors of his generation, reputed for his audacious re-readings of Shakespeare, to celebrate this hymn to youth?
