THE MONTE-CARLO BALLET
December 29, 2015 - January 4, 2016
Nutcracker Company echoes the experience of Jean-Christophe Maillot, who arrived in the Principality in 1993. The Director and Choreographer of the Monte-Carlo Ballet created a universe in which everything is possible and where dance is the most powerful form of magic. The emblematic characters which he imagined throughout his career are present through this piece, whose scenography, peppered with tricks, opens the choreographer’s memory box to bring out the highlights of his repertory in concentrated form. Colorful, festive, and moving, Nutcracker Company leads us into the heart of the choreographer and his narration. With more than 30 ballets created in Monaco, Jean-Christophe Maillot has invented a way of telling stories and bringing them to life by following dynamic movements and poetry all his own. By questioning the child that we once were, the choreographer invites us to explore at his side our human nature, so wonderfully complex.
Choreography: Jean-Christophe Maillot – Accompanied by the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra
