1 July. In Glow-Stop and Marie Antoniette, choreography by Jorma. Elo and Patrick de Bana. Since the former Paris Opera Ballet star Manuel Legris took the helm last year, the Austrian company has steadily become more adventurous and Patrick de Bana’s Marie-Antoinette, one of the many premieres Legris scheduled in his first season, is an ambitious effort: a new, two-act narrative ballet taking the fabled queen from her native Vienna to the guillotine. The score is a collage of baroque music and electronic transitions, and de Bana makes use of robot-like choreography for the presumably unpleasant French court. Glow-Stop by Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo is a moody work with a rather chaotic start that eventually comes together in the pairs' performances and its plays with shadows.
