From stage to screen

Mathieu Gremillet’s short film about the making of Magdalene, or, In Defence of Beauty (the opera-ballet choreographed by Remi for Dutch National Ballet) will have its silver-screen debut this weekend during the annual Cinedans Film Festival. If you weren’t able to make it to the Amsterdam Muziektheater for the ballet’s premiere and subsequent revival, Mat’s film offers an enticing sample of the performance along with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the creative team. It’s billed together with two further documentaries celebrating 50 years of the Dutch National Ballet and Rudolph Nureyev’s time in the Netherlands. Read the programme.
