Lady of the Camellias

Presented by Cincinnati Ballet at Unknown

Lady of the Camellias

The beauty and anguish of impassioned love

Set to the moving music of Frédéric Chopin, Val Caniparoli’s take on this poignant tale of two hopeful lovers explores both the beauty and anguish of impassioned love. His reputably challenging, yet breathtaking choreography journeys through love and loss in 19th Century Paris where Marguerite, a famous courtesan, and Armand, a young countryman, become entangled in a forbidden affair. The classic story, based on Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel, has inspired many screen and stage adaptations including the film Camille featuring an Oscar nominated performance by Greta Garbo, Moulin Rouge and the popular opera La Traviata. Caniparoli may be familiar to Cincinnati audiences as the choreographer of Frisch’s Presents The Nutcracker from 2001-2011, as well as Caprice and Vivace. Choreography: Val Caniparoli Music: Frédéric Chopin performed by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
