Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo will be performing “Le Songe” (The Dream), choreographed by Jean-Christophe Maillot, for one additional night at the National Theatre in Nice.
Already booked to perform on Saturday, January 21 at 8 pm and on Sunday, January 22 at 3 pm, the celebrated company will also perform at 8 pm later on Sunday. Described as a microcosm of Jean-Christophe Maillot’s work, Le Songe is loosely based on the theme of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
Le Songe represents a shift from his previous work. Jean-Christophe Maillot draws on three different worlds, the worlds of the Athenians, the Fairies and the Artisans. The three worlds that provide a setting for Le Songe reflect the three stages of maturity a dancer goes through.
