The Belgian dancer and choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui interprets Gluck's late Baroque opera Alceste as an impressive symbiosis between dance and music. The opera "can be experienced here in all it's existential power." (SZ) It is here performed in the revised Paris version from 1776 where Gluck has revalued especially the ballet music. Cherkaoui - director of the Royal Ballet of Flanders - has worked with top artists across disciplines like superstar Beyoncé. The superb dancers of the Belgian Compagnie Eastman, Antwerp perform Gluck's score physically, creating a fine and stringent aesthetics of "beautiful images" (Opernwelt). Dorothea Röschmann with her "inimitable charisma" (Financial Times) and Charles Castronovo deliver a brilliant performance in the roles of the self-sacrificing royal couple. "Musically impressive."
