Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo: “Faust”
December 27 @ 7:30 pm - December 31 @ 9:00 pm€12 – €36
Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo present “Faust” from Tuesday 27 to Saturday 31 December 2022, at 7.30 pm, in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
The concept of the “trinity” has always been important in the ballets of Jean-Christophe Maillot, an association of three characters that experiments with the most universal emotions and the most intense passions.
In Faust, this trinity achieves its pinnacle through the sacred yet cursed bond between Faust, Marguerite and Mephistopheles. Faust (unsatisfied and ageing), Marguerite (the feminine ideal) and Mephisto (pure evil) swim through the meanders of human comedy, whilst the tall and sensual silhouette of Death watches with great eyes filled with certainty.
