No strangers to Switzerland, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo were invited for the first time to the Opéra de Lausanne from January 19 to 21. The last visit of the Company to the city was in February 1996 at the Palais de Beaulieu, with a programme of “Ballets Russes”: Scheherazade, The Prodigal Son and Prince Igor.

Last week’s three performances of Cendrillon, with choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot, a play created in 1999 and danced more than 200 times across the world, received an ovation each evening from the Swiss public.

The Monaco Tourism and Convention Bureau, represented by its communication department, organised the Premiere evening, a successful operation with the Swiss press and their MICE guests.

During the performance on Saturday, January 20, Maison Chopard, a partner of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, honoured the Company during an exceptional evening organised by its co-president, Caroline Scheufele, and in close collaboration with the Director of Chopard Monaco, Xavier Fuller.

During the same week, Jean-Christophe Maillot, Choreographer Director of the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Bernice Coppieters, Principal Ballet Master, and Bruno Roque, former dancer of the company, worked with the Ballet de Flandres in Antwerp, Belgium. Maillot’s Faust, created in 2007 with the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, is currently in the Ballet de Flandres repertoire, and will be presented again until January 28, at the Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen for six performances.

The value of print

Oliver Hawkins

“Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent.” While the very talented Jim Jarmusch may not be talking about art prints, this well observed statement rather beautifully captures a point often overlooked by art collectors.
