    LA VEUVE JOYEUSE

    A ball at the Pontevedrian Embassy in Paris is the scene of political and romantic intrigue. The fortune of widow Hanna Glawari needs to remain on Pontevedrian soil and a marriage with her fellow countryman, Count Danilo, would guarantee the country’s stability. An ideal match but not the easiest to secure… Underpinning a whirlwind plot never far removed from dance, Franz Lehár’s score, in true Viennese tradition, displays a degree of orchestral and melodic refinement rarely attained in operetta. Waltzes, mazurkas and polkas set the pace in a production that, transposed to the 1920s, celebrates the splendours of a bygone world whilst raising the curtain on its fragility.

    COSI FAN TUTTE

    In entrusting the production of the first opera in its new Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy to Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, the Paris Opera has chosen an intimate marriage between song and dance. With her outstanding talent for highlighting the underlying geometry of musical works, the choreographer will be working with a double cast of both singers and dancers, transforming the stage of the Palais Garnier into a space in which the lovers, having made a wager with a philosopher straight out of the Enlightenment, undergo an experience both alchemical and emotional. Their bodies resemble the pairs of elements evoked by Goethe in Elective Affinities: they seem inseparable until a foreign body disrupts their equilibrium and creates new liaisons.

    JOYAUX

    George Balanchine, a fervent admirer of the female sex, pays tribute to them in Joyaux, a ballet inspired by the flamboyant window displays of the jewellers on New York’s 5th Avenue. Émeraudes, Rubis and Diamants succeed each other in a skilfully orchestrated triptych, a celebration of the capital cities of the three great schools of dance: Paris, New York and Saint Petersburg. To complete this luminous picture and bring a festive air, the Paris Opera has called upon the designer Christian Lacroix. Who better to bring to life Balanchine’s dream through sets and costumes than this creator of beauty?

    BALANCHINE / TESHIGAWARA / BAUSCH

    Two works by Stravinsky, both written for dance, come together: one caused a scandal at its first performance, the other marked the beginning of a new collaboration with George Balanchine. Agon has no scenario other than the score and translates into pure, abstract dance with a linear geometric quality that echoes the world’s title. In her version of The Rite of Spring, Pina Bausch urges the score’s rhythmic power to burst forth. On an earth‑covered stage, possessed by an intense energy, the dancers engage in a deeply‑moving ritual. Alongside these two masterpieces, Saburo Teshigawara has been commissioned to create a new work giving substance to a profound, organic and poetic language on Esa‑Pekka Salonen’s haunting Violin Concerto.
