A dancing tale from the ballet «Scaramouche» | Choreographed by José Martinez | Music by Darius Milhaud | Scenario by François Roussillon with the collaboration of José Martinez
Loosely based on the ballet «Scaramouche» and created by José Martinez in 2005 for the young pupils at the Opera de Paris School of Dance, «The children of Scaramouche» draws us into a dream, that of a pupil who imagines becoming a “danseur étoile”. This choreographic fiction, shot in real-life settings ranging from the Nanterre School of dance to the magical Palais Garnier, takes wing the streets of the capital. With the school’s pupils as the main protagonists, the story – in the manner of a coming of age tale – plunges us into the dreams and fears of childhood.
