Program notes

Choreographer Thierry Malandain stages a spectacular triptych at the Teatro Victoria Eugenia in San Sebastián: an evening dedicated to neoclassicism, his specialty. The trilogy begins with L'après-midi d'un faune, set to the famous symphonic poem by Debussy (itself inspired by hermetic poet Stéphane Mallarmé) and interpreted with flair and sensuality by Arnaud Mahouy. The next two chapters take us further back in time toward utterly different musical styles, all bound together by Malandain's expert staging and stylistic cohesion.
