Friday 9, Saturday 10, Sunday 11 July at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti Angelin Preljocaj, one of the massini international choreographers, presents Le Lac des cygnes, the musical masterpiece by Pëtr Il’ič Čajkovskij, alongside contemporary arrangements of the 79D collective. The environment is recreated from Boris Labbé’s videos. New choreography with a look at the dramaturgy of Petipa’s classic. While remaining faithful to the dramaturgical structure of the famous ballet, Preljocaj stages his version of the myth of the swan-dancer focusing on the impulses of each character with an eye to ecology and the future. An industrial metropolis, water disappearing due to global warming, the black swan in danger of extinction. “On the shores of a lake, Rothbart wants to exploit a fossil energy deposit. A young girl, Odette, seems to foil her plans, he will turn her into a swan – says the choreographer of Albanian origin – Elsewhere, at a party, Siegfried goes to oppose his father who wants to join forces with Rothbart to build a factory on the shores of Swan Lake “. Albanian of origins. , trained with Merce Gunningham in New York, for more than thirty years Angelin Prejlocaj has been at the helm of his Ballet with which he experiments the interaction between dance and virtual reality, as in Portraits in corpore, and between movement and sound processing, as with John Cage in Empty Moves (2004). He faced the classical ballet with the Orwellian Romèo et Juliette of 1990 and the imaginative BlancheNeige of 2008, on the bill at the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome.
