Passion and Dance
The saddest and most beautiful love story ever told through dance in a spectacle that insinuates more than demonstrates. It goes beyond narration because it provokes emotions.
Joëlle Bouvier, the brilliant French chorographer and the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, under the direction of Philippe Cohen -with whom Nureyev, Baryshnikov or Balanchine collaborated- , put their names to a spectacle which recreates Tristan und Isolde, Wagner’s romantic and provocative opera, by relying on the expressive power of dance. With this corps de ballet, it is a sure bet.
Ablaze in love. To succumb to the night of passion. To transcend time and space together beyond death. The story of Tristan und Isolde which Richard Wagner elevated to the category of a metaphysical drama continues to be the story of those who must fight to put their love over and above any restrictions and restraints. Tristan and Isolde live on. Their love and tragedy eclipses time, frontiers and language. In the same way as dance.
