L'esprit du ballet
9782841002931Sold by Opéra National de Paris
DescriptionNoverre le Novateur broadened the science of dance in the 18th century, before Romanticism renewed the art of ballet with Giselle and Swan Lake. The 20th century was also very fertile, particularly during the era of Russian and Swedish ballets, and there was no shortage of great choreographies: from Diaghilev and Balanchine to Pina Bausch and Philippe Decouflé, not forgetting Roland Petit, Serge Lifar and Maurice Béjart.
When he was sixteen, Marcel Schneider had a revelation when he discovered Russian ballets.
Since then, this passion has never left him. He delivers in this album the sum of a lifetime. All ballets are analysed: classical, romantic, Russian, modern...
An invitation to beauty, to the mysteries of bodies, to the supreme expression of grace.
