La Voie de l’Écuyère

Choreographed by Bartabas and the equestrians of the Académie équestre de Versailles, La Voie de l'écuyère - Opus 2023 illustrates the spirit and sensibility of the school-company, which has been based in the Grande Ecurie of the Palace of Versailles since 2003.

Based on the transmission of knowledge, the show sees the new class of equestrians evolve on new choreographies and revisit the emblematic tableaux of the Academy, such as the fencing on horseback, the ballet of sorayas with long reins, or the singing carousel.
