Corps de Ballet de l’Opera national de Paris
Best known for the spectacular quality of his pieces and their dreamlike imagery, like for instance his Midsummer Night’s Dream (released on DVD and Blu-ray by BelAir Classiques), the Swedish choreographer fills the stage of the Palais Garnier with an entrancing energy. The metallic structures, dancers suspended in space, and the elevations are but a few of the powerful images that will strike the audience’s imagination!
For this new creation, Alexander Ekman worked with his acolyte composer Mikael Karlsson, but also with a talented team of instrumentists not often seen on the stage of the Palais Garnier, among which gospel singer Callie Day, or the incredible drummer and marimbist Adelaïde Ferrière. An unexpected performance, carried along by enticing rhythms and communicative energy!
