The Ballet School’s production invites three great 20 th century choreographers and unveils three faces of modernity, three choreographic responses to music. Suite de danses by Ivan Clustine is a tribute to the French school tinged with Russian influences from Fokine’s Sylphides. To music by Chopin, the choreographic language, born of Romanticism, pave the way for the modernism of the 20 th century. Un ballo by Jiří Kylián makes its entry into the repertoire. Conceived to music by Ravel, it portrays several couples amid gracious and harmonious movements. Spring and Fall by John Neumeier will also enrich the repertoire. To a score by Dvořák, the choreographer offers us a piece suffused with folklore, full of elegance and emotion. Alongside the production, the Ballet School Demonstrations present the training given by this centuries-old institution.
