The performances of The Ninth Symphony, choreographed by Maurice Béjart to the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, originally scheduled for June 2020 at the Vaudoise Aréna in Lausanne-Malley, then postponed due to the measures taken to address the COVID-19 epidemic, will take place from June 23 to 27, 2021 at the same venue.
Since the Béjart Ballet Lausanne and its partner institutions – the Tokyo Ballet, the Sinfonietta de Lausanne, the Chœur Pro Arte Lausanne and the soloists – announced the postponement of Maurice Béjart‘s Ninth Symphony, they have worked hard together to coordinate their respective schedules. The five performances of the danced concert, originally scheduled from June 12 to 17, 2020 at the Vaudoise Aréna in Lausanne-Malley, have been rescheduled at the same venue from June 23 to 27, 2021.
This show couldn’t be held in 2020 due to the government’s measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic, so the two dance companies, the orchestra and the choir will meet again in 2021. The 250 artists of all origins will perform together this artistic manifesto for a united humanity.
“The Ninth Symphony is not only a ballet but a profound human involvement in a work that belongs to all humanity and that is not just performed and sung here, but danced.” – Maurice Béjart
