Silhouette, Nocturnes, and Estro by Thierry Malandain, music by Beethoven, Chopin and Vivaldi Malandain Ballet Biarritz

About

The inimitable Malandain Ballet Biarritz takes the stage at La Lanterne in Rambouillet, France, for a top-notch trio of ballets choreographed by Thierry Malandain. The triple feature kicks off with the intimate and sensual solo piece Silhouette, set to music from Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 30 in E Major. Dancer Frederik Deberdt shines in the minimalist showcase, by turns frenetic and gentle, and captivating throughout.

Next, the eminent Malandain invites us to rediscover beloved works by Chopin in Nocturnes, in which pianistic acrobatics by the great Franco-Polish composer perfectly accompany the dancers' fluid leaps and graceful contorsions. Finally, the hypnotic Estro closes out the program in a blue-hued, meditative ambiance, with the delicate group choreography executed in flawless harmony to the sounds of Vivaldi's soul-stirring Stabat Mater.
