Ce que l’amour me dit

Choreography by Maurice Béjart
Music by Gustav Mahler

Le Sacre du printemps

Choreography by Maurice Béjart
Music by Igor Strawinsky

It has been a long time since the Béjart Ballet Lausanne visited Berlin. Nevertheless, the legendary choreographer Maurice Béjart has always remained present in Berlin: at the Staatsballett Berlin with his works “Serait-ce la mort?” and “Ring um den Ring”. This ‘Opus magnum’, which premiered in 1990 at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, returned to the stage with the formation of the Staatsballett Berlin in 2004. For many years, the piece was a significant part of the repertory of the newly formed ballet company.

Maurice Béjart’s own troupe, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, which became the guardian of his choreographic heritage after his death in 2007, now gives a guest performance at the Staatsballett Berlin with three of his masterpieces. „Ce que l’amour me dit“, which premiered in 1974, „Le Sacre du printemps“ from 1959, and „Boléro“ from 1961 are all key pieces of his oeuvre.

The three works, which the Béjart Ballet Lausanne will present at the Tempodrom Berlin, are timeless. Once again, they will demonstrate the immense power of this legendary choreographer. Emotionally charged and enriched through Béjart’s very personal realm of ideas, these works communicate directly with the audience. They gain their unmistakable character from the moods of the music and from the almost philosophical interpretation by outstanding dancers. Hence, Polina Semionova will perform “Boléro” as a guest on 19 October 2014.

The guest performances of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne are jointly presented by the Staatsballett Berlin and the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
