An Iliad
Combining the majestic language of Homer with the informal way we speak today, An Iliad unleashes the thrilling tales of the Trojan War and delves into the psychology of passion and rage, ancient and modern. In this tour-de-force, one actor plays the Greek classic's famous characters Achilles, Hector, Agammemnon, and the beautiful Helen of Troy. Gods such as Athena and Hermes come and go. Colorful and emotionally charged, these accounts look at the impulses that drive people into battle, and ultimately reveal that human nature has not changed much in 2,000 years.

Directed by Philippe Cohen, the Geneva Ballet is known around the world for its exquisite dancers and exciting artistic collaborations.

The hypnotic quality of Sed Lux Permanet, choreographed by Ossola, and its sculpted shadow play enhance the delicate nature of bodies wreathed by the sensitive, ethereal sweetness of Faure's Requiem.
