Choreographer Angelin Preljocaj created Le Parc in 1994 for the Paris Opera Ballet with Isabelle Guérin and Laurent Hilaire in the leading roles. The choreography plays with elements of both classical and contemporary ballet. Angelin Preljocaj takes a contemporary look at the highly stylised traditions and rules of love and life in the 17th and 18th centuries. A game develops between temptation and devotion, between budding and disappointed love affairs, between fleeting and yet long-lasting encounters. The Bayerische Staatsorchester and pianists from the Bayerische Staatsballett play orchestral works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, which Preljocaj juxtaposes with Goran Vejvoda's soundscapes and soundscapes. Thierry Leproust's set design is inspired by classical parks in France and creates an ambiguous space for the mystery of love. In it, costume designer Hervé Pierre sets in motion a fascinating interplay of fabrics. He dresses the ensemble in rococo fashion and utilises the exciting contrast between opulent courtly dress code and light and airy gowns. The main couple grow closer and closer over the three acts of the ballet and finally come together in the final pas de deux, which has become known as the "flying kiss".
