The first ballet premiere of this season, Odyssey by Walter Matteini and Ina Broeckx, awaits you on Thursday, March 18. The complex roles of Odysseus and Penelope will be performed by Michele Pastorini and Maria Matarranz de las Heras.
The first association with Odysseus is Homer’s hero. However, Walter Matteini and Ina Broeckx also view ancient characters from the perspective of the real modern world and man. Odysseus’s heroism opposes his flaws, such as excessive ambition, selfishness, egocentrism, or Odysseus the Antihero. And Penelope brings the complexity of her inner world; she is self-denying and lonely, but at the same time very strong, passionate and temperamental.
Through the language of dance, the talented performers Michele Pastorini and Maria Matarranz de las Heras will directly confront us all with contemporary man’s well-known inner dilemmas.
