Ballet "Louis XIV – the Sun King"

The work focuses on the historical and artistic heritage of one of the brightest and most versatile people in the history, on his personality, and on the powerful realm he created as a symbol of theatre. The canvas of memories depicting Louis contains more than just bright tones and happiness. There is also plenty of anger, selfishness, suffering, ennui, powerlessness To compare one's life to dance, the phrase "dance of life" is very well suited to characterise the life of Louis XIV. Ballet has been a symbol of brilliance and wealth at the court of Louis. He himself danced in nearly 80 ballet roles, in addition to being a generous supporter of the ballet art and the arts in general. Ballet is a secret language for Louis to communicate with the noblewomen.
