THE LADY OF THE CAMELLIAS
Choreographer and Director: Krunislav Simić
Music Arrangement and Orchestration: Irena Popović
Inspired by a true story about the fate of a young, pretty Parisian courtesan Marie Duplessis, Alexandre Dumas (Fils) presented theatre, music and film creators with a story about the lady of the camellias.
The Lady of the Camellias ballet develops in a touching description of an authentic history of courtesan Marie Duplessis (in the novel and the drama Marguerite Gautier, in the opera Violetta Valery) in the best romanticist tradition, while it attempts to depict a modern woman who aspires to be “emancipated and free” in satisfying her sensual needs and indulging in earthly pleasures.
