Barcode: 0880242574886

Komponist: Stravinsky, Ravel
Mitwirkende: Maurice Bejart

Previously unreleased material with Maurice Béjart and the Béjart Ballet Lausanne – newly digitised and restored and featuring legendary dancers such as Maïa Plissetskaïa and Duska Sifnios.

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.
