Description
Legendary choreographer Roland Petit commissioned Oscar- and Grammy-winning composer Gabriel Yared to write the music for this 1999 ballet, inspired by Goethe's Romantic play Clavigo. Husband-and-wife dancers Nicolas Le Riche and Clairemarie Osta perform the lead roles of the ill-fated lovers. Stage designer Jean-Michel Wilmotte's abstract décor is an ideal foil for Luisa Spinatelli's "fantasy meets neo-Classicism" approach to costume.

"In the role of Marie, Clairemarie Osta looked just about ideal; small and pretty with delicate features and an air of fragile vulnerability, she stood out from the corrupt crowd by virtue of her freshness and innocence. Osta is the newest of the Paris étoiles and this was the first time I had seen her in a major role. I was impressed. As her lover, Clavigo, Nicholas Le Riche threw himself into the role of the dissolute Spaniard with abandon, falling in love and then allowing himself to revel in the debaucheries offered him by the ambiguous Carlos with equal relish. His lengthy death scene was heart-wrenching as he suffered the extreme consequences of his actions."—Critical Dance
