Jean-Christophe Maillot, the director and choreographer at the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, presents us with his personal vision of  Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, particularly focussed on its Act 2. It is a challenge for any choreographer to tackle a piece enjoying mythic reputation worldwide; in so doing, Maillot worked in collaboration with Prix Goncourt winner Jean Rouaud (dramaturgy), Ernest Pignon-Ernest (scenery), and Philippe Guillotel (costumes). On reviewing the show in April 2014, The Times wrote:“Maillot’s high-energy, space-consuming choreography is well versed in the language of classical ballet, engaging fluently with the music and accentuating the suppleness of the dancers’ elegant technique.”

The performance lasts about 1 hour and 55 minutes including an interval.
