Great Stables, Domaine de Chantilly
The riders of the Great Stables will transport you to a whole new world… The world of Metamorphoses. Metamorphoses of time, of souls, reworked objects, equestrian transformations…
Each number evokes these metamorphoses with a magical blend of horses, dance and shadows. With a nod to The Metamorphoses by Ovid, the Latin poet who recounted the legends of mythological figures and their transformations. Nymphs, muses, Diana the huntress, Galatea and Pygmalion – to name but a few – make brief appearances.
This original artistic creation will present acts including music specially composed to the rhythm of the horses’ steps. Passage, piaff, Spanish walk, pirouettes, caprioles, flying changes, all the Haute Ecole figures are featured in this show full of poetry and mischief. Spectators will be dazzled by the rhythm, emotions and sensations in this highly original show.
