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.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
