Natalia Osipova
(ROYAL BALLET OF LONDON)

Daniel Camargo


Heartbreak drives a peasant girl to madness and then to death. However, in the afterlife, the power of love does not succumb to feelings of revenge and shows the way to redemption. A key work of romantic ballet, this is a balanced synthesis of the technical, dramatic and stylistic characteristics of its time. Premiered in Paris in 1841, this piece maintains the irresistible gothic appeal of the original choreographic design by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, updated half a century later by Petipa. Argentine Gustavo Mollajoli (1935-2019) revisited that well-known version and offered his own with the Permanent Ballet, of which he was principal dancer and director. Mollajoli brought back the original movements, Petipa's lines and made contemporary contributions, but always respectful of the French style.

Permanent Ballet

The Permanent Ballet of the Teatro Colón was born of the concern that in the nineteenth century arises in Buenos Aires to have national artists who satiate the thirst for ballet awakened by the visit of countless foreign companies. It was in 1925 when the company's debut was realized.
