Festival Quartiers Danses presents

Malandain Ballet Biarritz – La Pastorale

The Malandain Biarritz Ballet presents La Pastorale, Ludwig van Beethoven’s 6th Symphony. Conveying the composer’s deep love for nature, the piece orchestrates 22 artists expressing, through dance, the innocence and peace of Ancient Greece. Serene and thoroughly idealistic, La Pastorale refers to Hellenic Antiquity as a nostalgic place of artistic perfection, where pain caused by endless desire meets bliss provided by the original light.

Choreography: Thierry Malandain
