béJART BALLET LAUSANNE

 

LE PRESBYTÈRE N’A RIEN PERDU DE SON CHARME, NI LE JARDIN DE SON ÉCLAT

 

Ballet For Life

A ballet about youth and hope, Maurice Béjart wanted to dedicate Le Presbytère n’a rien perdu de son charme ni le jardin de son éclat to his missing friends: Jorge Donn, his favorite lead dancer, and Freddie Mercury, lead singer of Queen. The exciting show flows on an elegant neoclassical choreography in perfect dialogue with the eclectic musical score. We dance to Queen’s hit songs, from Radio Ga Ga to I Want to Break Free, in counterpoint to the musical pages of Mozart, from Così fan tutte to the Masonic Funeral March K 477. A blaze of lightness and acrobatics, exciting sequences of solos, pas de deux, overall movements, with costumes by Gianni Versace, another brotherly friend of Béjart, enhance with flair. «A hymn of life triumphant over death» according to Béjart «because, as Queen sings, The show must go on».
