American swan in Paris( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American Swan in Paris is both a love letter to Paris and to dance. It features the charming Kathleen Thielhelm from Wisconsin, nine years a dancer with the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago, and a recent addition to the Bejart Ballet Lausanne. Not long after her arrival, the company is to perform at the Palais Garnier in Paris (the old Paris Opera) and the excitement and tension is palpable."--Original case
Gil Roman and the Béjart Ballet Lausanne : of heart and courage by Arantxa Aguirre Carballeira( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The choreographer Maurice Bejart was one of the most brilliant artists of the 20th century. He revolutionized the art of dance and excited thousands of spectators throughout the world, many of them indifferent to ballet until then. In order to continue and preserve his work and ballets, Bejart named the French dancer Gil Roman, a member of his company since 1979, as his successor. Roman is well aware of the dauntingly large shoes he's expected to fill. In this film, we see how Roman's own choreography, as well as leadership, must prove worthy to secure the future of a beloved institution hitherto unimaginable without its founder's active guidance. Daringly, Roman chooses to prove his mettle by staging BBL's first-ever program without any Bejart works. We glimpse rehearsals, and dancers past and present are interviewed. Excerpts of the new dances, look exciting, as does the climactic gala. Bejart himself is heard on archival tape and seen in stills, but the focus here is on the present magnificent company"--Original container

Aria by Montserrat Caballé( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in No Linguistic content and French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Aria, Gil Roman perpetuates Maurice Béjart's ambition: to create new pieces with the company and other choreographers. Created in 1987 by Maurice Béjart, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne is the successor of the prestigious Ballets du XXe siècle, formerly based in Belgium. In 2007, after Maurice Béjart's Death, without any doubt one of the Major figures of dance in the 20th century, choreographer of the Boléro performed today by companies all over the world, Gil Roman, a former dancer and Béjart's assistant, became the company's artistic director. Since then, the Béjart Ballet Lausanne has had a double ambition: of course, to diffuse its famous founder's art and style. But also to create new ballets thanks to several choreographers invited every year, so that the BBL does not become a company-museum. In 2008, the BBL created Aria, a piece choreographed by Gil Roman himself, his first creation since his master's death. Inspired by the Minotaur's myth, Aria is a ballet on the search for unity. According to Gil Roman, "the myth of the Minotaur is above all the fight of a unique person, embodied by Theseus and the Minotaur who pursue each other, fight and destroy each other. None of them survives this fight but they come alive again as one. Like this myth, free and Dionysiac dance corresponds to the instinctive force and to energy, and classical and Apollonian dance to reason and construction. Two disciplines mix each other on stage and become a single one." Gil Roman entered the Ballets du XXe siècle in 1979 and became Maurice Béjart's faithful follower from the beginning. His style shows his own personality and pays tribute to Béjart. Gil Roman received in 2005 the Danza & amp; Danza Award of the best dancer for his performance of Jacques Brel in the ballet Brel & amp; Barbara and the Nijinsky Award of the Monaco Dance Forum in 2006

Fifty years after its premiere, the Tokyo Ballet and Béjart Ballet Lausanne present Maurice Béjart's groundbreaking choreography to Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in Tokyo's NHK Hall.

The Ninth Symphony is truly one-of-a-kind, a work of ballet choreographed to the music from Beethoven's Ninth and poetic texts by Nietzsche, read here by Gil Roman (Artistic Director of Béjart Ballet Lausanne since 2007) with the accompaniment of percussionists Jean-Bruno Meier and Thierry Hochstätter. Piotr Nardelli, veteran dancer and longtime friend of Béjart Ballet Lausanne, worked closely with the two companies' dancers, teaching them the choreography as the great Maurice Béjart envisioned it

1 edition published in 2014 in Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experience the Béjart Ballet Lausanne in four masterpieces by the French choreographer and ballet company founder Maurice Béjart in the magical setting of the château de Versailles. The evening begins with the lapping Mediterranean waves of Seven Greek Dances. Groups of dancers alternate between pas de deux and solos set to the joyfully twirling melodies of Greek traditional music. Next the dancer Elisabet Ros transforms into the heroine of Alexandre Dumas' La Dame aux Camélias in Étude pour une Dame aux Camélias. "She was my LADY and I dream of her as a flower, 'a Camélia'! I will die, but I do not want her to die. Dream, Shadow, Imagination, ideal woman, I search for her and I will die searching, she who will perhaps also soon die! My Lady... of camellias." - Maurice Béjart. The little known and rarely performed Bhakti III is then performed by Béjart Ballet Lausanne, transporting us to the captivating India of the the gods Shakti and Shiva. B for Béjart, B for Boléro: the evening closes with Maurice Béjart's definitive masterpiece! Following in the footsteps of Duska Sifnios, Maïa Plissetskaïa, Marie-Agnès Gillot, and many others, the dancer Julien Favreau brings this showpiece of the repertoire to life
