Choreography and staging Pina Bausch

This “utterly mesmerizing…astounding work” (New York Times) marries Gluck’s famous opera with the legendary Pina Bausch’s fierce and riveting choreography in a stunning study of the fragility of the human condition. First performed by the Paris Opera Ballet in 2005, it weaves music and dance together to tell a complex and ultimately tragic story.
