Swan Lake signed by the great Angelin Preljocaj at the Municipal Theater of Modena
The French choreographer brings his version of one of the most famous classical ballets on tour

Modena Municipal Theater Foundation Presents

"Autumn Dance"
It will be staged on February 13 (6 pm) to Pavarotti Municipal Theater - Brakes of Modena Swan Lake of the Ballet Preljocaj, a new version of one of the most iconic ballets in the repertoire, which has conquered audiences and critics alike.

With this work, the great French choreographer of Albanian ancestry Angelin Preljocaj he returns to narrative ballet, an area in which he excels, and to the pleasure of telling stories. Neither Le Lac des cygnes, production of 2020, Preljocaj intersects the musical masterpiece of Tchaikovsky with decidedly contemporary arrangements as it is in his artistic style. Thus he creates his own version of the myth of the swan-dancer in a show of great charm.

“Of the ballet of Marius Petipa is Lev Ivanov I have kept the amorous plot - explains Preljocaj - the enchanting tale of the transformation of a woman into a swan. The choreography is by no means a reworking of Petipa, because I completely rewrote it. Structurally and fundamentally it is an original choreography, and this is perhaps the best tribute to pay to Marius Petipa, getting into his creative spirit and reinventing things. "

The Ballet Preljocaj, founded in 1985, has resided since 2006 at the Pavillon Noir in Aix-en-Provence, a place entirely dedicated to dance of which Preljocaj is the artistic director. His creations have entered the repertoire of prestigious companies such as the Ballet de l'Opéra National de Paris, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and the New York City Ballet.
