About

Jean-Christophe Maillot has re-worked Swan Lake with the writer Jean Rouaud (1990 Prix Goncourt winner) to bring a new drama to this pillar of the classic repertoire. This new adaptation, filmed in a special studio-setting at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, brings a modern-day relevance to the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette.

Designed by leading visual artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest, with costumes by Philippe Guillotel, and performed to a specially conceived and mastered soundtrack of Tchaikovsky’s score performed by the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, directed by Leonard Slatkin, the production has been hailed as ‘outstanding’ (Le Figaro), while the Jerusalem Post asserted ‘Swan Lake will never be the same after the tempestous Lac’.

This film of Lac won the top award at the 2103 Golden Prague, as ‘Best Performing Arts Program’, where it was described as ‘A ravishing stage production offering the spectator a thrilling interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece through contemporary dance’.

Recorded live at Grimaldi Forum, Monaco, 2013.
