Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo

Maillot – Goecke – Inger

In 2009, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo celebrated the centenary of Les Ballets Russes in Monaco, taking as our watchword to pay tribute to them in the most «astounding» manner possible in order to remain faithful to Diaghilev’s famous injunction to Cocteau. For more than a year, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo surprised the public by offering a series of new events of ubiquitous originality. The company is now re- engaging with this festive spirit by performing four ballets which echo the legendary figure of Nijinsky.
