14:00 Lady of the Camellias
Ballet by John Neumeier in three acts with a prologue to music by Frédéric Chopin. After the novel of the same name by Alexandre Dumas. The world premiere took place in Stuttgart on November 4, 1978. Choreography, Staging & Light: John Neumeier. Sets and Costumes: Jürgen Rose. Music Director: Pavel Sorokin. It begins in the Theatre-des-Varietes, during a performance of the ballet „Manon Lescaut”, in which the famous rococo courtesan deceives Des Grieux with numerous admirers. In the audience, Marguerite Gautier is disgusted by Manon’s frivolous in fidelity. Armand Duval, who has long admired Marguerite, is introduced to her by Gaston Rieux. Marguerite makes fun of Armand’s awkward sincerity. As he follows the ballet, Armand fears that his own future may reflect Des Grieux’s sorrowful fate. After the performance Marguerite invites Armand to her apartment along with his friend Gaston, the courtesan Prudence and her own escort, the wearisome young Count N. Annoyed by the jealous Count, Marguerite suffers a coughing attack. Armand follows her to her bedroom, offers his assistance, then confesses his love. Marguerite is moved by his sincere passion. However, aware of her fatal illness and needing the comfort of luxury, she insists that their affair must remain secret.
