Das starke Stück – Musiker erklären Meisterwerke
At its first performance on 22 November 1928 at the Garnier opera house in Paris, Boléro was danced by Ida Rubinstein, in the role of a Flamenco dancer, to an enthusiastic audience. Since then, numerous choreographers have used the work: while the most memorable version was produced by Maurice Béjart (1961) and immortalised by Claude Lelouch in the film Les Uns et les Autres,Serge Lifar (1941), Michel Fokine (1935) and Thierry Malandain (2001) also merit a mention.

This work was commissioned from Salvador Dalí in 1946 by the Capehart Corporation, a manufacturer of phonographs and radios. During the 1940s Capehart asked a number of artists to interpret a musical work visually — in Dalí’s case, Ravel’s Bolero.

Raoul, wounded during the war, is forbidden to dance. He disobeys and performs a highly sensual pas de deux with Helen. Although the two characters both come to grief, it is not for the same reasons. Whilst the hero dies of a heart attack, his young wife indulges in voluptuous pleasure, induced by the music. Wesley Ruggles divested Bolero of its Spanish character, choosing an uncluttered set (a round stage), simple costumes and slow, gliding movements extending the length of the dancers’ bodies and presaging Béjart’s choreography.
Who has stolen the Boléro by Maurice Ravel
The Basque language has been present on this small piece of land straddling the Pyrenees for several millennia, long before the migrations of Indo-European peoples. For thousands of years it has infused other European languages and has been nourished by all of those encounters. The Basque Country is a threshold, a crossing point and also a refuge. It has been a point of departure for a nation of sailors and workers who have traveled the world and always returned to their roots.
