Jean-Christophe Maillot has reworked Swan Lake with the writer Jean Rouard to bring a new drama to this pillar of the classic repertoire.

This new adaptation, filmed in a special studio setting at the Grimaldi Forum in Manaco, brings a modern-day relevance to the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette.

Designed by leading visual artist, Ernest Pignon-Ernest, with costumes by Philippe Guillotel and danced to a specially conceived and mastered soundtrack of Tchaikovsky’s score, performed by the St. Louis Symphony (directed by Leonard Slatkin), this production, was hailed as outstanding by Le Figaro.

This film of LAC won the top film award at the 2013 Golden Prague Festival, as Best Performing Arts Program, where it was described as a ravishing stage production offering the spectator a thrilling interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece through contemporary dance.

Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound.
