NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo will celebrate choreographer-director Jean-Christophe Maillot's 20th anniversary with the company this year by premiering LAC (after Swan Lake), Maillot's personal vision of Tchaikovsky's masterwork, with performances at The Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa (March 7 - 9) and the New York City Center (March 14 - 16).
LAC will be presented by Les Ballets De Monte-Carlo, in association with The Segerstrom Center, New York City Center and Ardani Artists. Visual artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest designed the scenery, with costume design by Philippe Guillotel.
Jean-Christophe Maillot has re-worked Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's pillar of the classic repertoire with the award-winning writer Jean Rouaud, bringing a modern-day relevance to the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette. The 2011 work explores the torments of childhood fears and nightmares. Buried experiences and memories are resurrected against a Machiavellian family backdrop to create a ballet of stark contrasts - good vs. evil, white vs. black, purity vs. eroticism – questions that define us as human beings.
"LAC is a new version of the classical ballet, honoring the past, but with a slice of contemporary codes," said Jean-Christophe Maillot." Today's audiences can feel attached to the story Swan Lake, one of ballet's most beautiful stories. It is a story of sensuality, about the ideal woman. The White Swan is the beautiful, pure woman every man falls in love with once in his life; the Black Swan represents sexuality, strength, power and control. We look forward to introducing this new ballet that that showcases the dancers' artistry with traditional and contemporary ballet styles," he said.
"The combined creativity of Jean-Christophe and the company of Les Ballets, together with their passion for excellence, is reflected in this acclaimed production. We are truly delighted that these wonderful cultural envoys of the principality are back to showcase the singular cultural heritage of Monaco," said Her Excellency Maguy Maccario Doyle, Monaco's Ambassador to the United States.
New Yorkers are invited to purchase a 'Premiere Experience' package that includes premium seating for the New York performance of LAC on March 14, followed by an exclusive cast after-party hosted by the Consulate General of Monaco and the Monaco Government Tourist Office. Guests will have the chance to meet and mingle with director-choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot and the members of this world-renowned company, including principal dancers, while enjoying champagne, cocktails and fine food. Space is strictly limited to first 100 'Premiere Experience' ticket purchasers. Each 'Premiere Experience' ticket is $275.00 with all proceeds benefitting Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo.
