THE MAGIC FLUTE with the Bejart Ballet

1
Where: Megaron, Athens Concert Hall
When: 20-23 & 25-30 December 2019
Why Go: See a modern choreography of a classic tale

In the spirit of Christmas, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne returns to Athens, this time presenting Wolfgang Mozart’s The Magic Flute, at the Megaron Athens Concert Hall.

The ballet company alternates between fantasy and ritual to portray this fairy tale’s dichotomy of childish innocence in a harsh adult world.

Performed to original choreography by the great pioneer in dance, Maurice Béjart.
