Maurice Bejart: Leap-in-time Rite of Spring & Bolero
11 Jan 2019
Composer: Stravinsky, Ravel
Other participants: Maurice Bejart
Maurice Béjart’s choreography set to Ravel's Boléro is considered a masterpiece. Created in 1960, it features a dancer on a tabletop first stepping to the tune's simplicity, surrounded by seated men, who, in turn, slowly participate in the dance, adding complexity to the building in the orchestration, culminating in a climactic union of the dancers atop the table.
