Levaillant: La Petite Danseuse De Degas
OSTA GILBERT GANIO MARTINEZ PECH MAURIN ROMBERG THIBAULT ORCHESTRE DE L'OPERA NATIONAL DE PARIS KESSELS
This production of Little Dancer of Fourteen Years is part of Arthaus Musik’s Elegance Series, which is a collection of ballet performances from the world’s best dance houses featuring the greatest choreographers and celebrating the legacy of legendary choreographer Marius Petipa. This colorful ballet was created by Patrice Bart and Martine Kahane after researching Edgar Degas’s sculpture from 1881, Little Dancer of Fourteen Years. While a number of books, films, and exhibitions had already been dedicated to Degas, this is the first choreographic work which has done so. The music featured in this ballet varies immensely in style, from Baroque to Modern and Jazz. This release features the world premiere recording, live from the Opera Garnier, Paris 2010.
