Under the Presidency of H.R.H the Princess of Hanover, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Monaco's official dance company, makes its Joyce debut with two riveting works created by celebrated choreographer-director Jean-Christophe Maillot. Opus 40, a beautifully-staged piece with sets and costumes by the American painter George Condo and music by the incomparable Meredith Monk, portrays emotion and mystery captured in structured frames. Also on the program is Part I from Altro Canto, a 2006 work with costumes by designer Karl Lagerfeld and a set by Rolf Sachs. Performed to the passionate music of Monteverdi and others, Altro Canto features constant, intense movement punctuated by startling jolts of energy.

Venue Description: An inexpensive dance theater located in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, inside the former Elgin 1940's movie house. Renowned companies such as Complexions, FOCUS DANCE, MOMIX, Parson, and many others make this their NYC stop.
