Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Choreographer Thierry Malandain conceived his Magifique from Tchaikovsky's orchestral suites from The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake, which together comprise a best-of offering from the three iconic ballets. The result is a true Malandain masterpiece that lays bare the deepest emotion and greatest inspiration imaginable in contemporary ballet. Mandalain explains the title, "I remembered that as a child I defined my wonderments as "Magifique". Magnifique without a "n" because hatred divides (the word for hatred in French sounds like the letter "n"), and that this invented word, a sort of short-circuited language, fits well with the intentions of this creation: to create magic or else recycle life's raw material through expressive and poetic forms."
