Returning to Segerstrom Center for the Arts after their magnificent California debut in 2012, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo is back with the American premiere of Choré, featuring music from Danny Elfman and John Cage. Jean-Christophe Maillot's sleek full-length ballet takes an edgy, provocative look at the evolution of Hollywood musicals beginning with the golden age of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, set against the backdrop of harsh historical events including the Great Depression and wars of the 20th century. A fresh and emotional work, Maillot's epic, ambitious new ballet stirs the mind as well as the heart.
