Vladimir Malakhov has drawn inspiration from historic lithographs to create a new staging of the romantic ballet LA PÉRI for the Staatsballett Berlin. Like the sylphids, the wilis and all the other unattainable fairy and elfin beings that populated the 19th century ballet stage in great numbers and in many new interpretations, the péris are oriental heavenly creatures that embody Prince Achmed’s yearning for another form of existence. A beautiful péri appears to him with her retinue and promises him redemption: she promises that the barrier between Heaven and Earth can be overcome by the power of love.

The ballet LA PÉRI was first performed in 1843 at the Paris Opéra. Friedrich Burgmüller composed the music, and Théophile Gautier’s libretto was translated into dance by the choreographer Jean Coralli. Vladimir Malakhov’s interpretation of the ballet is expressed in a refined and delicate dance style, which was characteristic of the romantic era and follows naturally from the music. The stage and costume designer, Jordi Roig, has lovingly created an opulent, historic setting in which the atmosphere of the exotic scene is brought to life and the ballet can work its unique magic.


45 minutes before each performance (except premieres), there is an introduction in the opera house (in German).
It is prepared and moderated by students of the institute of dance studies (Institut für Tanzwissenschaft) of Freie Universität Berlin.
