After Snow White and Romeo and Juliet, Angelin Preljocaj returns to narrative ballet and his taste for magnificent stories that make timeless tales. Sublimating Tchaikovsky’s musical masterpiece, he captures the myth of the swan princess and places the story into a powerful universe, at the heart of the ecological catastrophes of our time. Power, beauty, love and death are at the heart of this masterpiece by Angelin Preljocaj, which has affected the public so much that the Royal Opera of Versailles is presenting it again: here is a magnificent event for all ages, a choreographic miracle that transcends styles.
