This Ravel evening brings together two ballets on the themes of love and seduction. Whilst one of them – virtuoso and colourful – displays fluid classical lines, the other – all in red and black – is stark but seething with eroticism. In Daphnis and Chloé (2014), with sets and costumes by Daniel Buren, Benjamin Millepied recounts how love between a shepherd and a shepherdess triumphs over temptations and threats. In Maurice Béjart’s Boléro (1961), a soloist captivates his audience from the top of a table. Transported by the heady rhythms of Ravel’s score, the performer compellingly draws the rest of the group into the dance.
