Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen – Opera Bastille


Debut at the Opera Bastille with „Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen“ by Gustav Mahler in the Ballet Production of Maurice Béjart

Conductor: Patrick Lange
Coreography: Maurice Bejart

April-May 2023

The partnership between Maurice Béjart and the Paris Opera lasted for over forty years and provided the institution with more than twenty pieces. In a tribute to this choreographer who died fifteen years ago, the Paris Opera Ballet presents three works initially created during the seventies and which all shine with equal choreographic and musical intensity. Written for two male dancers, Le Chant du compagnon errant is an intimate work to a song cycle by Mahler highlighting all the rigour and grace of Béjart’s language.
