The Béjart Ballet Lausanne will perform The Ninth Symphony from June 23 to 27, 2021 at the Vaudoise Aréna in Lausanne
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 Arena 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 Pro Arte Choir of Lausanne and the soloists – announced the postponement of Maurice Béjart‘s Ninth Symphony in April, they have worked hard together to coordinate their respective schedules. Today they are pleased to announce that the five performances of the danced concert, originally scheduled from June 12 to 17, 2020 at the Vaudoise Arena in Lausanne-Malley, have been rescheduled at the same venue from June 23 to 27, 2021.
This show couldn’t be held this year 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 a ballet in the general sense of the term but a profound human participation in a masterpiece that belongs to the whole mankind, and is not only played and sung here, but is danced.” – Maurice Béjart
