Elegance and PRECISION in two enchanting SHOWPIECES

 

The Royal Swedish Ballet present a neo-classical programme comprising the work of two choreographers that have introduced a paradigm shift in the way many view dance and classical ballet.

SUITE EN BLANC

Serge Lifar’s showpiece Suite en blanc is one of the most demanding neo-classical ballets ever created and a lesson in precision and beauty. First performed in 1943, it did not reach Stockholm and the Royal Swedish Ballet until 2019. Following the premiere, Expressen wrote about a “technically demanding” and “decorative” ballet of “historic importance”. Dansportalen wrote: “The Royal Ballet’s first performance of a ballet by Lifar is pure joy,” and Sveriges Radio’s Kulturnytt reported “elegance” and “very smart”.

CARMEN

Classical ballet, modernism and Spanish rhythms come together in Roland Petit’s Carmen from 1949. With Georges Bizet’s famous music and costumes by Antoni Clavé, we can promise a powerful experience with the headstrong Carmen centre stage. The curtain was raised to Petit’s Carmen over 5,000 times in the first fifty years that followed the premiere – audiences across the world are still captivated by it.
