The “versatile and daring” (The New York Times) Lyon Opera Ballet returns to The Joyce Theater, joining the citywide Beethoven Celebration honoring the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Movement and musicality interact in distinct ways in Trois Grandes Fugues, a stunning triple bill presenting the work of trailblazing choreographers Maguy Marin, Lucinda Childs, and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. With an inquiry into translation, these women each undertake the musical complexity of Beethoven’s “Grosse Fuge” in three different choreographic imaginings, exquisitely performed by a striking ensemble of dancers. This event is part of Carnegie Hall’s Beethoven Celebration.
Lyon Opera Ballet is a 2020 recipient of The Joyce Theater’s Rudolf Nureyev Prize for New Dance. Underwriting support for The Joyce’s presentation of Lyon Opera Ballet provided by Kathleen A. Scott.
