Elegance and decadence in The Estates Theatre – Valmont
The game of seduction has only one rule: Never fall in love! Valmont – the Czech National Ballet December 2018 – three performances – NEW CAST!
The romantic story about cynical hedonists has been adapted by the Czech choreographer Libor Vaculík to Franz Schubert’s and and Pēteris Vasks’s music (arranged by Metr Malásek). The chamber production oscillates between dance theatre and drama. Libor Vaculík does not overwhelm the audience with spectacular show – he concentrates on delicate, sensitive depiction of the protagonists’ nature.
“I am very happy that this ballet is still alive and you – the ballet lovers – still want to see it. We prepared a brand new cast for you and are looking forward to your visit. Sincerely, Libor Vaculík.”
Adam Zvonař will play Valmont for the first time, Kristýna Němečková will be Marquise de Merteuil, Irina Burduja will dance Cecile de Volanges and Jonáš Dolník will become Knight Danceny.
The premiere of this new cast will take place on December 4 and on December 7 you will have the last opportunity to admire Adam Zvonař as Valmont. On December 8 another first soloist, Giovanny Rotolo, will try to seduce you.
Elegance and decadence in The Estates Theatre: „Love devoid of emotions becomes a cold strategy calculated to the very last detail...“
Make your December special by visiting Valmont – the galant romantic ballet. Tickets.
