2004-2005 season for French companies and theaters
Posted 25 May 2004 - 04:29 AM
- a "Homage to Balanchine" with "Theme and variations", "Apollon musagète" and "Slaughter on 10th avenue", in october.
- "The Nutcracker" (production by Michel Rahn) in december.
- a triple bill with Nils Christe's "Sync", Luca Tozzi's "La jeune fille et la mort" and Jiri Kylian's "Sinfonietta" in february.
- "Giselle" (production by Nanette Glushak) in june.
The ballet will also perform in Offenbach's "La vie parisienne" in december, and in a "Gala d'opérettes" in june.
All the programs, except the modern mixed bill, will be with the Orchestre national du Capitole. The 2002-2003 season had been a reduced season, because of some renovation works at the Théâtre du Capitole.
I think that the Ballet de Toulouse has by far the largest Balanchine repertory among the French companies except POB, having also performed "Allegro brillante", "Rubies", "The Prodigal Son", "Liebeslieder Walzer", "Raymonda Variations", "Square Dance", "Scotch Symphony", "Tarantella pas de deux", "Who cares ?", and "Stars and Stripes" (I think the three works in the triple bill are new in the company's repertory, but I'm not sure). I wish they had toured more, as many of those works aren't in the POB repertory, or haven't been performed there for decades.

As usual, there's mostly some modern dance, but here are the few ballet programs of the season (well, more or less ballet):
-Sept 14-18: a triple bill of Mauro Bigonzetti works (Vespro, Les Noces, Cantata) by the Aterballetto company
-Sept 20-24: the Ballett Mainz in Martin Schläpfter's "L'art de la fugue" (actually, I don't know if it's a ballet or modern work)
-Oct 13-17: some NYCB dancers in "Danses concertantes", a program organized by Alexander Meinertz and Benjamin Millepied, in Robbins' "In the Night" and "Suite of dances" and two works by Millepied
-Dec 1-8: Alonzo King's Lines Ballet (in King's "Koto" and "Who dressed you like a foreigner)
-Mar 23- Apr 3: the Béjart Ballet Lausanne in "Bhakti" (1968), "Wien, Wien, nur Du allein" (1982), "Serait-ce la mort?" (1970) and "K 538" (2003) (sounds like an Indian- Austrian program )
-May 3-6: the young dancers of the Lyon Conservatoire
