THE FAIRYTALE OF THE YEAR FOR A NIGHT OF DANCE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY

In the wake of a total success on different stages around Europe, for the first time ever, French choreographer Thierry Malandain will be bringing to Catalonia his own particular reading of Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s tale (1740), popularised by the abbreviated version by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont (1756). Malandain has captivated both audiences and critics with this show that combines an apparently simple staging with live music based on a Tchaikovsky score and performed by the Basque Symphony Orchestra. An original performance with a great deal of symbolism and a wardrobe that blends classicism with the avant-garde, wonderfully delicate virtuoso movement to the service of an evocative choreography. Coming to the festival is a dance performance that will carry the viewer off to the world of the fairytale, the world of fantasy and imagination, a place where everything is possible and where love can emerge between a beautiful young woman and an apparently ferocious beast. All the ingredients are in place, to serve up a fairytale night at the Castell de Peralada Festival.
