Lac DVD (Les Ballets de Monte Carlo)

Jean-Christophe Maillot has reworked Swan Lake with the writer Jean Rouaud to bring a new drama to this pillar of the classic repertory. This new adaptation, filmed in a special studio-setting at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, brings a modern-day relevance to the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette. Designed by leading visual artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest, with costumes by Philippe Guillotel, and performed to a specially conceived and mastered soundtrack of Tchaikovsky’s score performed by the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, directed by Leonard Slatkin.
