Monte Carlo Ballets to perform at Spring Arts Festival

Ballets de Monte-Carlo will perform two ballets as part of the Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival.

The first, Abstract/Life, a creation of Jean-Christophe Maillot, takes up the idea of a vast concerto, this time for cello and orchestra. The score of Bruno Mantovani was commissioned by Marc Monnet, Artistic Advisor of the Spring Arts Festival.

Sensitive to the way Jean-Christophe Maillot appropriates all types of music, the composer created Abstract alternating between contrasts and moments of waiting then submitted his piece to the choreographer with whom he collaborated in 2004 on the occasion of the ballet Miniatures.

The second ballet, Violin Concerto, as composed by Stravinsky, marks the return of Balanchine. The Ballets de Monte-Carlo, who have presented 19 ballets of “Mister B”, are among the best companies that have performed it.

The choreographer, who refuses to speak about his works in terms of preference, himself agreed to say of this Violin Concerto that it was “well done”, that is to say that he had reached a “certain” point of accomplishment.
