Full of romance and beauty, the Swan Lake ballet is considered the most spectacular in the classical dance repertoire.
The choreography of the Swan Lake ballet requires great dexterity and high technical competence in the dancers’ interpretation of the characters. The duplicity of character present in the purity of the figure of the White Swan and the intrigue of the Black Swan, require a high degree of drama and virtuosity in the performance of the Principal dancer, especially in the two Grand Pas de Deux, interpreted in the II and III scenes of this work. Another climactic moment is the dazzling Dance of the Little Swans.
The prestige and timeless notoriety achieved by the work are motivated by the inspired music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, but also by the inventive and expressive choreography of Marius Petipa who, relating the human body with the movements of a swan, reveals its genius, its choreographic potential. and artistic creativity.
A theme of true romantic poetics, where good triumphs over evil.
The Nutcracker, a charming narrative that awakens our imagination, sending us to the realm of fantasy. A Christmas dream with animated dolls, evil creatures and an unlikely hero – the Nutcracker Prince.
Filled with romance and fantasy, The Nutcracker extols children’s ability to dream and the genuineness of their feelings – Clara’s first love.
The Nutcracker perpetuated Tchaikovsky’s genius with the famous Opus 71, full of remarkable melodies such as the Sugar Fairy Dance and A Waltz of Flowers. Marius Petipa revealed his originality and creativity in the choreographic development of this timeless masterpiece, which remains one of the most performed shows ever.
the sleeping beauty
The Sleeping Beauty, a narrative that awakens the magic of fairy tales. An enchanted world of castles and forests, curses and fairies; only the kiss of true love will be able to undo the spell – the consecration of Romanticism.
Full of romanticism and marked by lyricism, The Sleeping Beauty represents a great challenge for dancers, especially in the interpretation of the main character Princess Aurora, demanding a crystalline academic style – elegant and fragile.
The Sleeping Beauty is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful pages of the illustrious Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky. Imperishable melodies like Rosa Adagio and Grande Valse Villageoise reveal the author’s lyricism. The relationship between Tchaikovsky’s music and Marius Petipa’s choreography is so perfect that it would be difficult to imagine another reading of the score. Therefore, music and choreography in a brilliant symbiosis made this piece considered the emblematic work of classical dance.
Giselle, a narrative of love and betrayal, with a surprising denouement; one of the most outstanding works in the classical dance repertoire.
Giselle evokes the spirits of the forest and the forces of nature – a tragic beauty. The second act of the work is of extreme elegance – called the “white act” in reference to the Willis – only comparable to the perfection of acts II and IV of the Swan Lake ballet.
Considered the masterpiece of romantic ballet, Giselle arouses great interest due to its high technical level, in the performance of the character by the main dancer, and mimicry, as an artistic expression that uses body movements to communicate. Adolphe Adam composed a charming masterpiece, full of harmonic modeling and Leitmotive, associating musical phrases with the characters. Marius Petipa brilliantly adapted the original choreography by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot.
