`
Quand viendra la saison nouvelle,
Quand auront disparu les froids,
Tous les deux nous irons, ma belle,
Pour cueillir le muguet aux bois ;
Théophile Gautier, Les nuits d'été;: “Villanelle”


The year 1903 marked the bicentenary of the birth of the French composer Hector Berlioz. The ballet of the city opera op Nice celebrated the occasion by presenting a program around this composer. In this context, Kirsten Debrock was invited to create a choreography on two works by Berlioz. One of these was Les nuits d'été, the performance of which benefited from the live participation of the orchestra of the opera of Nice conducted by Attilio Tomasello and the mezzo-soprano Véronique Gens.
