Malandain Ballet BiarritzWednesday | March 22nd | 7:30PM
While remaining faithful to the storyline of the familiar tale of a young woman on the path to accomplishment through doubt, denial, pain and hope, this is not the fairytale ballet you might be expecting from Prokofiev’s original score. In the bodies of the 22 illustrious French MBB dancers, this breathtaking visual display is a little darker, richer, and more comically dramatic than dreamed possible. And it’s a lot about shoes. And a cross-gender stepmother and sisters. Danced in soft shoes, the vision flows between comedy and emotion in a clever yet movingly sincere piece unlike any you’ve seen.
