Rochester City Ballet: Moulin d'Paris

March 1, 2020 2 – 4 p.m. February 28 – March 1

Rochester City Ballet has received its first National Endowment for the Arts grant in its history to commission The Chautauqua Institution’s resident choreographer, Mark Diamond, to create a world premiere ballet set in Paris, 1900. (Story adapted from the novel of Alexandre Dumas, Lady of the Camellias)

Armand has moved to Paris to study poetry. He is staying with his old friend Francois, who is a connoisseur of Paris' hedonistic nightlife. The best way to introduce Armand to this exciting world is to take him to Paris' hottest nightclub. The minute you step inside there are no boundaries to the color, music, sensuous characters, and timeless experiences. Armand is  thrilled by all of this until he sets his eyes on Lisette, the club’s beautiful star. Being naive and hopelessly in love, he begins a painful education into the realities behind the cabaret's stage.
