Limb’s Theorem and Giselle
Two great classics of the contemporary repertoire interpreted by the “corps de ballet” of the Opera of Lyon, for the first time at the Teatro Regio.
Teatro Regio, from 29th November to 7th December 2013
The Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon begins its European tour in Turin. The Teatro Regio will host the ballet company performing two ballets with strong contemporary twist: Limb's Theorem by William Forsythe with music by Thom Willems (29, 30 November at 20:0 and 1st December at 15:00) and Giselle choreographed by Mats Ek on the famous score by Adolphe-Charles Adam (5, 6 December at 20:00 and on 7th December at 15:00).
The Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon, a company of classical dancers devoted to contemporary music, is one of the best known dance companies in the world. Its current director, Yorgos Loukos, has worked towards, since the early nineties, the diffusion of contemporary choreographic language, building a repertoire of 93 titles, 48 of which have been specially created for the Ballet de l'Opéra de Lyon. All the greatest choreographers of the twentieth century have collaborated with the French team, enriching it with new aesthetic proposals and strengthening its contemporary identity. Americans talents such as Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, Bill T. Jones and the Europeans Jirí Kylián, Sasha Waltz and Philippe Decouflé, just to name a few, have always found in the company Lyonnaise the perfect tool to create and implement their own artistic language.
