La bôite à joujoux 

The choreographer Jean-Guillaume Bart and the artist Bea Szenfeld have, together with the Royal Swedish Ballet, created a new work inspired by the seminal ballet La boîte à joujoux (The Toy Box). When it was first performed in 1921, the critics hailed the advent of a new art form. This was neither ballet nor music – it was better! The Royal Swedish Ballet give new life to the toys in the box accompanied by fantastical, playful music by Claude Debussy.

 

Carmen 

Roland Petit’s Carmen from 1949 is an amalgamation of classical ballet, modernism and Spanish rhythms. The famous score by Georges Bizet and costumes by Antoni Clavé contribute to an intense experience with Carmen at the centre. The ballet, which was performed more than 5,000 times in the fifty years after the premiere, captures audiences all over the world to this day.
