White Darkness & The Lavender Follies

Nacho Duato composed the one-act ballet White Darkness as a requiem for his sister. The result is a masterpiece which, according to critics, has reached heights deemed hitherto impossible on the landscape of modern arts. In contrast, American choreographer Joseph Hernandez, a regular guest at Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, creates an exhilarating aesthetic universe with an urge to live and a lust for life in The Lavender Follies.
