“In Trois Grandes Fugues, the 35-member company brings together a magisterial trio of choreographers… With each of their highly individual settings we hear, see and feel Beethoven’s fugue in fabulously new ways.” The Guardian (U.K.)

France’s world-renowned Lyon Opera Ballet performs the West Coast premiere of its acclaimed Trois Grandes Fugues, a revolutionary program featuring three responses to Beethoven’s beloved masterpiece “Grosse Fuge” by three major female choreographers – France’s rebellious Maguy Marin, America’s meticulous Lucinda Childs and Belgium’s hypnotic Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. The acclaimed 35-member company is known for its exceptionally ambitious and diverse repertory, showcasing a stunningly broad range of choreographers, from Merce Cunningham to William Forsythe. With this “simple yet audacious idea” (The New York Times), the company highlights different interpretations of choreography, movement and musicality, performed to the fullest by an extraordinary cast of dancers.
