About

In few words:

A Russian flavour suffuses this evening of dance in a tribute to two emblematic works of the Ballets Russes, reinterpreted by contemporary choreographers. Following the success of the hypnotic Love in 2003, Sharon Eyal, a former dancer and artistic collaborator with the Batsheva Dance Company, now performs with her own company L-E-V. For her first production with the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet, the choreographer revisits Claude Debussy’s mythical score. In the wake of Faun, which entered the repertoire in 2017, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui continues to explore the Ballets Russes repertoire and takes up Scheherazade. Both choreographers break down the barriers between the arts and offer a new perspective on dance. In counterpoint, a score by Rachmaninov is given movement by Frederick Ashton: Rhapsody pays tribute to academic classicism and shines with dynamism and virtuosity.
