Les Étoiles, on the other hand, is the title of the classic dance gala in which the greatest names in ballet will perform at La Fenice on 21 and 22 July 2018. The programme includes a variety of repertoire pieces, such as Victory Gsovskly’s Grand Pas Classique to music by Daniel Aube, the virtuoso pas de deux of Diana and Atteone with choreography by Agrippina Vaganova to music by Riccardo Drigo, George Balanchine’s famous Čajkovskij Pas de Deux and Spartacus, by the legendary Yuri Grigorovich to music by Aram Khachaturian.

A star-studded cast, as the title of this gala anticipates, in a rich programme of virtuoso brilliance and stirring moments of ‘poetry on pointe’ made up of famous excerpts from the classical repertory, such as the popular pas de deux entirely or partially choreographed by the demiurge of 19th-century ballet, Marius Petipa (on the bicentenary of his birth) taken from ballets that are well-known and well-loved all over the world, such as Swan Lake, Don Quixote and Le Corsaire.

These are just a few of the pieces by which the audience of Les Étoiles will be regaled. A 360° overview of classical ballet today, the programme of Les Étoiles also features sophisticated pas de deux from the contemporary repertory by dance makers of our times such as Britain’s Russell Maliphant whose Spiral Twist will not fail to mesmerise spectators; in addition, two pieces by American choreographer John Neumeier, director of the Hamburg Ballet and demiurge of present-day ballet: Don Juan created for Rudolf Nureyev (an opportunity to pay tribute to the great Russian dancer on the 80th anniversary of his birth and 25th of his death) and Adagietto, to the moving notes of Gustav Mahler so closely associated, in most people’s minds, with Visconti’s iconic film Death in Venice. From the genius of Spanish choreographer Antonio, Farruca del Molinero, to music by Manuel de Falla, conjures up Ballets Russes atmospherics reminding us how Diaghilev’s famous dancer, Léonide Massine, used to adore this piece.
