Les Ballets de Monte Carlo & Jean-Christophe Maillot’s LAC (after Swan Lake) |New York City Center, Mar 14 – 16, 2014….

January 27, 2014


New York’s  premiere of Jean-Christophe Maillot’s personal vision of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. It is a vast challenge for any choreographer to tackle this legendary piece which is so well-known throughout the world. For this project which has been dear to his heart for ten years, the choreographer wanted to work with the writer Jean Rouaud, 1990 Prix Goncourt winner, to bring a new drama to this pillar of the classic repertoire. Together they have adapted the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette so that this narrative resonates with our own questioning. The visual artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest, a long-time associate of Jean-Christophe Maillot will design the scenery for this Lac and Philippe Guillotel will be responsible for creating the costumes.
