Hailed personality, at the same time fragile and sensitive; in the spotlight or in the shadows of his intimate torments, Vaslav Nijinsky remains today the object of absolute fascination. John Neumeier has explored this exceptional figure - the dancer, the choreographer, the human, the visionary - his complexity and facets in many of his ballets, driven by a deep artistic, historical but, above all human interest. For the first time at La Scala, his original reading of Le Pavillon d’Armide, L’Après-Midi d’un Faune, and a new version of Petruška for la Scala, three masterpieces symbolic of the creative ferment of the Ballets Russes and of the brightest star of this revolutionary avant-garde.
