About

Three masterworks by Kader Belarbi shine in these stunning Ballet du Capitole productions. Hailed by Le Figaro as ‘simply magnificent: a miracle in two acts’, Le Corsaire is a bold reinvention of a 19th-century classic. La Bęte 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-lauded production 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 the tragic story of King Peter I of Portugal’s devotion to his beloved Inęs.

Kader Belarbi is a former dancer with the Paris Opéra Ballet, where he performed in many premieres. As a choreographer he has created over 40 ballets. He has been director of the Capitole Ballet since 2012.

‘… all the markings of one of the classic ballets: It had romance, spectacle and drama, and it was beautiful.’ - The Times (La Bęte 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)
