Le SongeMusic: Mendelssohn, Felix (1809-1847)
Choreography: Jean-Christophe Maillot

Elegant and groundbreaking, classical and innovative

Le songe is a ballet inspired by William Shakespeare’s famous comedy about desire A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in the context of a natural, and at the same time magical setting. This is what Jean-Christophe Maillot portrays in his choreography, created in 2005, with background music by Felix Mendelssohn and electronic music scores by Daniel Teruggi and Bertrand Maillot. Theatre, music and dance to stage fascinating confusion.

Sensitive, playful, ingenious, brilliant, diabolical or serious, three generations of dancers represent a bustling human microcosm that intertwines humour and wit. With this production, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, heir to the tradition created by Serge Diaghilev, asserts its traditional roots, and at the same time, its commitment to the avant-garde.

Approx running time 1 hour 40 mins.

Tickets on sale from June 2017.
