Ballet du Capitole: Trois ballets de Kader Belarbi

Davit Galstyan (Le Corsaire (Le Corsaire)); Maria Gutierrez (La Belle Esclave (Le Corsaire)); Julie Loria (The Beauty (La Bête et la Belle)); Takafumi Watanabe (The Beast (La Bête et la Belle)); Artjom Maksakov (Roi Ferrante (La Reine Morte)); Maria Gutierrez (Dona Ines De Castro (La Reine Morte));

​Three masterworks by Kader Belarbi shine in these stunning Ballet du Capitoleproductions. Hailed by Le Figaro as ‘simply magnificent: a miracle in two acts’,Le Corsaire is a bold reinvention of a 19th-century classic. La Bête et la Belle –a compelling reimagining of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast – had its place affirmed among the best of modern ballets by Belarbi’s much-laudedproduction for Théâtre du Capitole. La Reine morte, based on Montherlant’s play of the same name and set to an enchanting score by Tchaikovsky, tells thetragic story of King Peter I of Portugal’s devotion to his beloved Inês.

"… all the markings of one of the classic ballets: It had romance, spectacle and drama, and it was beautiful." (The Times - La Bête et La Belle)

"There is much heartache, murder and intrigue, but Belarbi has created dances in the classical style, which are set to a selection of music by Tchaikovsky." (Dancing Times - La Reine Morte)
