Milan gives a big ovation to the BBL
The spring season is looking good for the Béjart Ballet Lausanne! Gil Roman‘s company was invited by Italian star dancer Roberto Bolle to perform from May 10 to 17 at the vast Teatro Arcimboldi in the Lombardy capital. The BBL presented a three-part program for seven evenings in front of a sold-out 2,100 seat venue: Alors on danse…!, the latest creation of the BBL’s Artistic Director, arranged as a tribute to Patrick Dupond, 7 danses grecques and Bolero, by Maurice Béjart, performed by Roberto Bolle.
More than 14,000 people attended the show and cheered the Lausanne-based company, which just returned home last weekend and is now flying to Antwerp to perform at the Stadsschouwburg. From May 25 to 28, the BBL will present Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent, by Gil Roman, Béjart fête Maurice and Bolero by Maurice Béjart. The first three performances are already sold out; only a few seats are left for the matinee show on Sunday, May 28, at 2:30 pm.
