All on the same programme, Thierry Malandain merges The Four Seasons by Vivaldi, one of the best known and most played pieces of all time, and The Four Seasons composed by his contemporary and fellow countryman Giovanni Antonio Guido, which is practically unknown. Bringing both compositions into the same programme is a risk because, apart from belonging to the same era and celebrating nature, they have nothing else in common. The Biarritz choreographer’s next creation is therefore an exciting challenge, where he meticulously attempts to keep both the score and the musicality intact, according to how it was written.
With The Seasons, Thierry Malandain follows the consistent path he began in his latest ballets on humanity’s relations with living beings and nature. Malandain is behind over 80 choreographies and continues to add to this coherent repertoire, deeply tied to Ballet, where he prioritises the dancing body, its power, virtuosity, humanity and sensuality. The search for meaning and aesthetics are the basis for a timeless sober style that has brought him vast international prestige.
