On the night before Christmas

Dates Complete – Places still available for the fundraising performance on the 15th of February at 15h00 in favour of people suffering from multiple sclerosis.

A child sits alone under a small, thin Christmas tree. A few decorations that have survived from previous Christmases are hanging sadly from its branches. The child’s mother is dead. Suddenly, like a dream or as if by magic, she is there, next to him, and places a little present at the foot of the tree. The enchanted night begins. The present grows and becomes a miraculous apparition, friends appear, the mother is there, alive, followed by two angels of light and Marius-Mephisto. The entire room dances and the child starts to laugh.

Is it a dream? Reality is what we feel. It is the moment, here and now. Free of anguish, the child sees the pas de deux from the Nutcracker ballet directed by Marius, his teacher, and danced by the prince and princess.

He will be a dancer.

Designated by Maurice Béjart as his successor, Gil Roman has directed the company and preserved its artistic excellence since the master’s death in 2007.
