After Blanche Neige and Roméo et Juliette, Angelin Preljocaj returns to narrative ballet, a field in which he excels, and gives Čajkovskij’s musical a contemporary slant.
While he remains faithful to the dramaturgical structure of the famous ballet, Preljocaj presents his own version of the myth of the swan-dancer, focusing on the impulses that inspire and motivate each character. The choreographer explores the depths of a lake that is yet to reveal its secrets, exploring the Russian culture that is so dear to him. With Ghost in 2008, Preljocaj began to explore the work of choreographer Marius Petipa – the choreographer who, in the late 1800s, made Le Lac des cygnes a classic. With his own take on Le Lac des cygnes, Preljocaj continues that process.
