Something out of the ordinary in the ballet world: The Vienna State Opera Ballet Academy entertains the audience in Monte Carlo with their unique approach to ‘The Concert’, a comic ballet set to Chopin’s music written by Jerome Robbins.
A brief one-act choreography brilliantly merging comedy and ballet, their performance drew bursts of laughter and impromptu applause throughout the evening.
The Ballet Academy at the Vienna State Opera dates back to the year 1771. With the ballet schools in Paris and St. Petersburg, this institution is therefore one of the longest-standing educational institutions for classical ballet. For touring info, visit their official website.
