"La Dame aux camélias"
Based on the Alexandre Dumas novel that also inspired the stories of Verdi's "La traviata" and Hollywood's "Moulin Rouge", John Neumeier creates a riveting dance drama around the famous woman of lore, "La Dame aux camélias". The passionate tale of Marguerite Gautier and Armand Duval unfolds ingeniously through a drama-within-a-drama as they meet at the theatre during a performance of "Manon Lescaut". So begin their romantiv adventures in Paris, brought to life by Neumeier's intense and refined choreographic language. Chopin's ravishing music highlights this exceptional neo-classical ballet, featuring the star dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet. This lavish production is all about love, passion, danger and glorious dancing from one of the best ballet companies in the world.
'John Neumeier has created a ballet in which emotions go crescendo... Agnes Letestu, the great dramatic heroine, triumphs in this ballet danced to music by Chopin.' --Figaro
