From one of the most powerful of all choral works in Western music, the Argentine choreographer Mauricio Wainrot sets in motion a whole flurry of emotions, energy and joy in the highest final of the Alleluia . The three artistic forces of the Opéra National de Bordeaux (Ballet, Chorus and Orchestra) find themselves together on stage at the Grand Theatre. 29 dancers dressed in white suits are changing the game of blue lights. Tangible architectures, carefully worked, explore, in the spirit of the Modern Dance, the principle of elevation, in both its physical and spiritual implications.  The succession of solos, duos, trios, ensembles, ballet evokes the structure and linked together in an infinite plenitude of classical grace and contemporary research.
