The charm of La Chauve-souris by Roland Petit, a great master in contemporary ballet, is the spectacular development of the story based on free interpretations of the homonymous operetta and the refined flavor of dancing.Delightful dancing full of Petit’s characteristic wit develops to Johann Straus II’s music.The ballet is, of course, concluded with Vienna waltzes.This wonderful work makes the audience feel splendid and happy as soon as the curtain rises.
