i saw les ballets de monte-carlo last night. they did a version of swan lake, LAC, that i highly recommend. remember: how can one forget, the slow slow build up of swan lake. in fact, it often never really takes off. well this one does. dancing all over the place. people aren't standing stiffly, waiting for life to happen, it just does. Jean-Christophe Maillot the choreographer-director & Carolyn, Princess of Hanover, is the goddess overlooking his company, based in Monaco. the prince, who always suffers the stiff immobilization of his kind, is released; though hesitant, he dances furiously.
Segerstrom went wild. i can see a tantalizing future for ballet with this kind of choreography, unlocking the stilted 3 acts of our past & throwing them on the stage with gifted dancers. & there were a number of them. lots of enthusiasm too. it was a wonderful evening.

TOO TOO minimalist for my taste. disappointed no full symphony orchestra, music was excerpted which I didn't care for. Dancers had several miscues that I noticed. Stick tot he classic interpretation as it was written and intended.
