Marie-Antoinette, lover and protector of the arts: this is the image that this ballet gives to the last Queen of France. A vibrant and colourful tribute to the one who was mistreated by history.

Christoph Wilibald Glük (1714-1787)

We all remember the « Austrian woman », even by her significant nickname « Madam deficit », but on the other hand, putting to one side the parties, the balls, the extravagant garments, Marie-Antoinette’s pronounced fondness for the arts, the theatre, music and dance is less well-known. And so, even though a staff was affected to oversee her pleasures, Marie-Antoinette, dealt herself with the organisation of Court spectacles, and even became involved with those taking place in Paris. Studying singing, harpsichord and the harp, she would also be involved in acting. But without a doubt the role of her life was that of Dauphine and then Queen of France, caught between etiquette, inactivity, frivolity and intrigues. Using the material, where theatricality plays a central role, Thierry Malandain has created for Château de Versailles Spectacles in 2019, this ballet Marie-Antoinette based on the symphonies of Joseph Haydn and Christoph Willibald Gluck.

Filmed March 31st 2019 at the Royal Opera of Versailles, during the world premiere.
