Le Manteau
Maurice Béjart

Everyone knows the story of Akaki Akakievitch, a small employee who, year after year, has an old coat repaired to the point that it can no longer be fixed.

After hard work and with the help from the tailor Petrovitch, he receives a new coat gaining him popularity within high society.

This coat will be later stolen and he will die of cold in front of the mortuary in the indifference of “important personalities”, lawful guardians.

But his ghost appears night after night robbing peoples’ coats!
