The Ballets of Monte Carlo have been heartily congratulated for their masterful interpretations of the creations of Jeroen Verbruggen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, performed from July 19 to July 22 at Salle Garnier at the Monte-Carlo Opera.

Jean-Christophe Maillot, the company’s director-choreographer, has enriched the already acclaimed repertoire of Les Ballets by using the contributions of these young contemporary choreographers, both of whom have long-standing connections with the company.

Jeroen Verbruggen danced for ten years with Les Ballets before embarking on his own career as a choreographer whose first works were performed in Monaco (Kill Bambi in 2012).

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui created In Memoriam in 2004, then Mea Culpa in 2006, before completing his trilogy this year with Memento Mori. The exceptional dancers of the Monte Carlo Ballets knew so well how to make the magic of others’ imagination come to life on the stage, further enhancing the stellar worldwide reputation of the Ballets of Monte Carlo.
