Things to see

 

William Forsythe
PremiereFrance

William Forsythe has reworked the history of his dance in Study # 3. But he taps 30 years of his own repertoire to make a study of it, as the title indicates. A research laboratory.

Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly was poorly received at its La Scala premiere, and deemed a mere replica of his previous work. After slight tweaking, it was acclaimed at its second premiere at the Teatro Grande in Brescia. In creating Study # 3 in the same theatre, Forsythe questions both the relevance of place and the chance parallels between Puccini’s opera and his own works. Drawing on a 30-year repertoire of vocal elements and movements to present them afresh, Forsythe has created a new, radically different kinetic opera: the fruit of contexts both strange and familiar.
