Tous les hommes presque toujours s'imaginent

The Béjart Ballet Lausanne will return to Japan in May 2020, bringing two amazing programs. Program A is Ballet for Life, a legendary masterpiece created by Maurice Béjart to the music of Queen and Mozart, with costumes by Gianni Versace. Program B is a triple bill including Tous les hommes presques toujours s'imaginent, a new creation by Artistic Director Gil Roman, Brel et Barbara and Boléro by Maurice Béjart.

Join us on an exciting journey of a fusion of ballet and rock music, classical music, jazz and chanson by the ever evolving Béjart Ballet Lausanne.

Message from Brian May, Queen

"I hope all our fans and friends will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity once again to see the most incredible and original ballet built around the music of Mozart and Queen, by ballet's most audacious creator, our sadly missed great friend Maurice Béjart."
