Le Jeune Homme Et La Mort (The Young Man and the Death)
Ever since I saw this (probably on HBO) as a young person, I was riveted by the opening scene of White Nights. Baryshnikov makes ballet for men, cool. This is probably my favorite ballet (given that I'm not familiar with any others, other than seeing snippets of classical). And I think the French dancer in it is just deadly beautiful!
Below is another interpretation of the modern ballet piece:
Ballet de Roland Petit musique de Jean Sebastien Bach Bach Passacaglia in C Minor (for orchestra) Le jeune homme = Nicolas Le Riche La mort = Marie-Agnès Gillot
