The Ballet of Monte Carlo performs ‘Le Songe’ a ballet by choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot based on Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. A dream-like comedy surfing on the wings of the maddest desires. Maillot activates the three driving forces of his imaginary: theatre, music and dance for an orchestra, in an enchanting disorder. Tender, mischievous, ingenuous, dazzling, earthy or serious, three generations of dancers represent a human microcosm that gets entangled with humour. Recorded at the Atelier des Ballets de Monte Carlo in October 2008. Soloists are Bernice Coppieters, Jérôme Marchand, Jeroen Verbruggen, Anjara Ballesteros, Sarah Jane Medley,Jens Weber and Cyril Bréant.
