This 2016 documentary by Arantxa Aguirre is an immersive look at the staging of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony by the Béjart Ballet of Lausanne, France. The Béjart troupe dances with the Tokyo Ballet with music by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Israel. The international collaboration creates a spellbinding performance of movements that give physical expression to four movements from Ludwig van Beethoven’s classical masterpiece composed between 1822 and 1824.
