One massive piece of music. Three choreographers’ remarkable interpretations.
In “one of the most exhilarating, uncompromising evenings of dance” (The Guardian), three of the world’s most esteemed choreographers, Lucinda Childs (US), Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker (Belgium) and Maguy Marin (France), present their own visions of Beethoven’s passionate masterpiece Die Grosse Fugue.
Performed by the world-renowned Lyon Opera Ballet, a company known for taking on a vast range of ambitious work, this “monumental, stark and uncompromising” (New York Times) triple bill takes you deep inside Beethoven’s score, in ways so different and gripping it reveals how strongly music can move you.
Choreographed by: Lucinda Childs, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Maguy Marin
