Archè is an innovative production that takes inspiration primarily from the age-old classic, Swan Lake.
This ballet explores and embraces much of the original story, and some of the classical repertoire, while also taking inspiration from the Greek myth - Leda and The Swan, and The Dying Swan.
Director Simon Hoy has structured this work around his unique choreographic style, and has developed an original score that includes music by Tchaikovsky, Einaudi, Arnalds, Morricone, Jeanrenaud and Elgar.
Since its premiere in Melbourne in 2015, this emotionally charged production has received very positive critical reviews, and is suitable for audiences everywhere.
Archè is created by Simon Hoy, with choreography by Simon Hoy and Tim Podesta.
'The Melbourne Ballet Company can boast not only a cast of proficient performers, but a resident choreographer in Simon Hoy, whose movement signature is lyrical, generous and optimistic – somewhat reflective of the buoyant spirit of this young contemporary ballet company' - The Age.
