Ballet Preljocaj - Swan Lake

Voluble arms, multiplied whiteness and thwarted loves in the middle of the skyscrapers of our contemporary metropolises. Angelin Preljocaj takes over Swan Lake as he knows how: with audacity and respect. Dusted of course, but not denatured. It's all there: the magnificent mirror effects of the second act, the precision of the group choreography – 26 dancers on stage! –, verticality and purity. And of course, the love story between Odette and Prince Siegfried.

Extract from:

The Ballet Preljocaj is on tour in France with Le Lac des Cygnes.
