A living legend combining modernity, technique and beauty set to works by Vivaldi, Mozart and Bach.
Czech dancer and choreographer Jiří Kylián is a living legend of dance. He has created routines that have inspired the new generations of dancers, including Return to a Strange Land, Forgotten Land and Stamping Ground. In his pieces, Kylián combines modernity, technique and beauty in equal parts, one of his most characteristic traits. Now the Lyon Opera Ballet is touring auditoriums around the world with some of his most characteristic choreographies in a daring, highly suggestive programme that has garnered much praise. These pieces are set to compositions by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, Alessandro Marcello, Antonio Vivaldi, John Cage, Philip Glass, Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, among others. Kylián’s philosophy takes the rationality of physical exercise as its jumping off point to delve into the spiritual element of the human body in motion.
The show features three choreographies: Wings of Wax (from 1997), the subtle Petite mort, which premièred in Salzburg for the 200th anniversary of Mozart’s death (from 1991) and Bella Figura (from 1995). It will be on from 25 to 28 April at different times, at Gran Teatre del Liceu.
Tickets cost between €10 and €162.80, depending on the seat. You can get your tickets on the Liceu website.
