Ballet Preljocaj: Les Nuits (The Nights) @ The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Ballet Preljocaj Post

I’m excited to be attending Ballet Preljocaj’s: Les Nuits (French for “The Nights”) tomorrow night at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.  Ballet Preljocaj is France’s leading contemporary dance company. Their latest production, “Les Nuits,” is based on the much loved tales of One Thousand and One Nights. In English, the tales are often referred to as  the “Arabian Nights.” Familiar stories you may recognize from this collection are Aladdin’s Magic Lamp, The Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. Other than the fact that I love the ballet, I’m excited to attend this particular ballet because the costumes have been designed by well known couturier Azzedine Alaïa. In addition, The Music Center has invited two local designers, Bri Seeley and Michelle Hébert to create three looks inspired by the tales of “Les Nuits.” Here is a look at some of the designers’ sketches . . .

See you at the ballet!!
