Descripción

BALLET IN TWO ACTS (1892)
CHOREOGRAPHY BY RUDOLF NUREYEV
ALETH FRANCILLON'S CHOREOGRAPHIC REVIVAL
TEATRO COLÓN PRODUCTION

The Christmas classic returns as season closing with all the magic of Hoffmann's tale and the depth of Rudolf Nureyev's approach. This version was premiered at the Teatro Colón in 1971 by the choreographer himself along with the dancers Olga Ferri and Norma Fontenla. The dream world of a girl and the challenges she faces as she becomes a woman are the underlying themes of a work that the genius Nureyev unravels like few others.
