Quote from

The ballet “Annonciation”, premiered at the Opéra de Lausanne in 1995, winner of the «Bessie Award» 1997, is on the notes of Crystal Music by Stéphane Roy and Vivaldi’s Magnificat. Preljocaj stages a key moment in Catholic culture: the encounter between the Virgin Mary and the Archangel Gabriel. He is the first choreographer to address the theme of the Annunciation on a stage: “Many painters over the last two millennia have never ceased to wonder about the multitude of antithetical symbols present in the Annunciation, – declared Preljocaj – and it is surprising to see how this theme so tied to the body is almost removed from the choreographic art. There are more than twenty centuries of very different iconography and announcements. There is a great variety of looks, gestures, emotions. It’s almost a comic that can be rebuilt and this gave me the idea of ​​making a ballet out of it. You can tell a story, not just a moment stuck in an image”.

The new creation “Nuit romaine” completes and embellishes the evening. Conceived by Angelin Preljocaj for the Roman company during the pandemic, it had its first debut in April 2022 with the premiere of the film of the same name, screened last August on the occasion of the “Cinema Opera” in the square of the Theater. The film, the result of the collaboration between the Maison Dior and the Capitoline Foundation, in synergy with the French Embassy, ​​was shot at Palazzo Farnese.
