Houston Ballet: Marie-Antoinette

Houston Ballet: Marie-Antoinette
MONTREAL  •  Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier  •  Ongoing

Visiting company Houston Ballet performs Marie-Antoinette, a sweeping narrative ballet about the life and death of French queen Marie Antoinette. Featuring sumptuous costumes and regal sets by Canadian designer Kandis Cook, Marie charts the progression of Marie Antoinette from innocent child bride to frivolous royal fashionista to ruined queen, with energy, richly choreographed gestures and a contemplative score by Shostakovich. The ballet opens with the young, vivacious Marie being stripped of her Austrian clothes and redressed in the French style; from there, it evocatively charts how she eventually grows into the tender wife and loving mother who finally accepts the kiss from Madame Guillotine.
