Georg Friedrich HAENDEL : Terpsichore
Choreographic creation by Beatric Massin, Terpsichore pays tribute to the muse of dance and confirms the choreographer's energy-filled new baroque style.
One act of song and dance, a genuine miniature opera conceived by Handel during famous dancer Marie Sallé's trip to London, shows the French influence on all of Europe. Terpsichore combines her virtuoso steps with the singing of Erato and Apollo. In comparison, the most beautiful choreographic symphonies of Rebel recall to what extent of accomplishment and refinement dance had achieved during the reign of Louis XV.
