WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

France's leading contemporary ballet company, Ballet Preljocaj, (pronounced prezh-oh-kahzh) performs a romantic and contemporary retelling of Snow White (Blanche Neige), based on the Grimm brothers' original fairytale, with Preljocaj's personal variations based on an analysis of symbolism. This lush, full-length story ballet by French choreographer, Angelin Preljocaj, features massive sets, 26 dancers, and an all-star roster of French artists and designers including the magnificent excesses of Gustav Mahler symphonies, magical sets by Thierry Leproust, and costumes by legendary Jean Paul Gaultier. The characters' bodies are transcended by Preljocaj's signature choreography to demonstrate space, energy, and ultimately feelings, using inventive gestures, clever substitution, and even pirouetting, wall climbing dwarves of acrobatic distinction. Contains partial nudity.
