Sleeping Beauty

24.8.2018 – 15.9.2018

A French soiree

28.9.2018 – 20.10.2018

Two poetic dance stories

A French soiree presents two totally different dance works – naturally with a good dose of French elegance. Carolyn Carlson’s Pneuma is sophisticated and philosophical, an ode to humanity. Serge Lifar’s Suite en Blanc radiates the style and glamour of pure classical ballet.
