Premiere of the ballet “Ghost”, choreographer Angelin Preljocaj

On the occasion of the bicentennial anniversary of the birth of Marius Petipa, Angelin Preljocaj was commissioned by the Diaghilev Festival in St Petersburg to imagine a new creation in tribute to the choreographer.

In this new work, Angelin Preljocaj plunges into the choreographer’s imagination when he had the idea of creating his famous “Swan Lake”. With this choreographic wink, he amuses himself going back and forth
between our time and the past of Imperial Russia. “Ghost” evokes for Angelin Preljocaj the trace left in our
collective unconscious by the great figures of artistic creation. A ‘phantom’ existence in the poetic sense of the term.

Premiere: November 27, 2018. Festival “Diaghilev. P.S.”, St Petersburg

Performers: Mirea Delogu, Antoine Dubois, Nuriya Nagimova, Anna Gueho, Alice Leloup
