Liturgie is a ballet-opera. This performance will be a world premier of a forgotten Ballets Russes dreamed up by Diaghilev in 1914.
It is mystical and colourful, a total work of art not to be missed!

About

Encounter love and loss as the story of the Virgin Mary, and her journey from freedom to constraint, is told through music and dance.

Liturgie was first conceived by Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes as a ballet-opera presenting the Orthodox rite as a total work of art. For a century, it lay unfinished. Spectra Ensemble’s production now marks Liturgie‘s world premiere, combining designs drawn from Natalia Goncharova’s original plans with new music by Daniel Lee Chappell and new choreography by Camille Jetzer.  A contemporary twist on an age-old tale, Liturgie offers a powerful expression of female agency.

Liturgie will be performed as part of the Tete-a-Tete Opera festival. Co-organised by The Place
