LA ROSE MALADE. Roland Petit

  • Choreography: Roland Petit
  • Music: Gustav Mahler
  • Set design: Luigi Bonino,
  • -Artistic Director of Roland Petit ballets-
  • Lighting and Technical Supervisor: Jean-Michel Désiré
  • Duration: 12 minutes
  • World premiere by National Ballet of Marselle in 1973. Opera de Marseille (France)
  • Premiere by Compañía Nacional de Danza on December 15, 1987, at Teatro Principal de Zaragoza (Spain).

Choreography based on William´s Blake poem “The marriage of heaven and hell“ based upon Gustav Mahler´s fifth symphony Adaggietto.

  • O Rose thou art sick.
  • The invisible worm,
  • That flies in the night
  • In the howling storm:
  • Has found out thy bed
  • Of crimson joy:
  • And his dark secret love
  • Does thy life destroy.

La rose malade was created for Maya Plisetskaya, and it shows: hypnotising port de bras with arms moving like underwater plants. Set to the Adagietto from Mahler’s Fifth Symphony the music and subdued lighting are beautiful by themselves. Add a wonderful couple of dancers and the result is bewitching.
