The BBL returns to Brussels

The BBL returns to Brussels

Busy day at chemin du Presbytère 12 in Lausanne. While the Béjart Ballet’s technicians were organizing the truck transportation of 213 parcels of material for the show (21 tons!), Henri Davila, costume designer, and Leïla Chételat, dresser, were adding the final touches to 200 costumes that had to be hung in the flight cases. No time to lose: everything must be ready for the company’s premiere at the Cirque Royal in Brussels on Thursday, March 17…

 

The Béjart Ballet Lausanne in Brussels… is like a return to their roots, where Maurice Béjart wrote the first pages of his story as the director of the Ballet du XXème Siècle at the Théâtre Royal de La Monnaie, from 1960 until its closure and his departure for the capital of Vaud in 1987 to create the BBL. It would be an understatement to say that the company and its artistic director Gil Roman are eagerly awaited in the Belgian capital: more than 5,800 spectators have already bought their tickets. The five scheduled performances are sold out.

 

The 34 dancers are in top form and have been rehearsing the three ballets they will perform in Brussels right up until the day before they leave: Tous les hommes presque toujours s’imaginent, by Gil Roman (a Belgian premiere), 7 danses grecques and Boléro by Maurice Béjart. The promise of wonderful evenings…

 

 

Béjart Ballet Lausanne would like to thank its national partner EFG Private Banking for its support.
