"KATIA ET MARIELLE LABEQUE - LOVE STORIES" in concert at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo on 11th November 2016

 

They are sisters and pianists and form an intensely close duo which has ignited the world’s stages. For this new show, charmingly titled “Love Stories”, Katia and Marielle Labèque have chosen to revisit the myth of “Romeo and Juliet” creating a fusion between Leonard Bernstein, hip-hop and breakdancing. Created at the Châtelet, in Paris, “Love Stories” is presented in two acts.

 

In the first act, Katia and Marielle play Bernstein’s famous score, arranged for two pianos and percussion by Irwin Kostal. This 17 parts suite (the tubes of “West Side Story”) brings to life the scenes of the musical and the film that it was based on, without any artifice other than the talent of the two pianists and their percussionist accomplices, Raphael Séguinier and Gonzalo Grau.

 

In the second part, Katia and Marielle Labèque present a creation entitled “Star-Cross’d lovers,” with a composition by David Chalmin and original choreography by Yaman Okur, who has worked with Madonna and the Cirque du Soleil. He has invented a “Romeo and Juliet” for six breakdancers and a contemporary soloist, which draws on rock as well as hip-hop, ending in a breakdancing “battle”.

 

It is not a “classical” show, but everywhere it’s been presented, the public has asked for more!
