Notes & Reviews:
Prima ballerina Zizi Jeanmaire performs the works of world-renowned choreographer / dancer Roland Petit and delivers an emotional and passionate tribute to the acclaimed artist.
This magnificent program contains three dance pieces, shot on film, that showcase the superlative Zizi Jeanmaire along with ballet greats Rudolf Nureyev, Dirk Sanders and the one and only Roland Petit.
Carmen is the historical ballet that marks the debut of Roland Petit as a choreographer and the dancing debut of prima ballerina Zizi Jeanmaire. In an erotic and emotionally charged performance, Jeanmaire and Petit take on the roles of the fatal lovers, and deliver an astounding performance.
Jeanmaire is joined on stage by dance legend Rudolf Nureyev in what has become a cult repertoire ballet - the quintessential result of the prolific reunion between Jean Cocteau, and Roland Petit.
This rare historical ballet marks Roland Petit's foray into the world of musical comedy. Jeanmaire sings and dances in the role of the Gold Digger and is teamed with dance great Dirk Sanders.Notes & Reviews:
