"BYE (AJÖ), has been heralded as a "masterpiece" by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. It is performed by Sylvie Guillem, "the most brilliant ballerina of her generation" (The Guardian, UK) and is choreographed and directed by acclaimed Swedish choreographer Mats Ek. BYE is a film interpretation of Mats Ek's solo piece BYE for and requested by Sylvie Guillem. Set to Beethoven's last piano sonata, Opus 111, in a recording by Ivo Pogorelich, the stage performance of BYE is described by Mats Ek as being "... about a woman who takes leave of a certain stage in her life. It is a conversation that she has with herself that leads to new experiences."--Container

Ballets with the étoiles of the Paris Opera( Visual )

1 edition published in 1985 and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During their carreers at the Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris, Patrick Dupond, Noëlla Pontois, Sylvie Guillem and Claude de Vulpian had all been named "étoiles," the highest French distinction for classical ballet. Their names and performances remain unforgotten. This programme is a unique opportunity for us to live again the enchantement of the 1980s when, at the Palais Garnier, these great dancers used to perform the masterpieces of the repertoire, warmly acclaimed by their public. In 1985, they are gathered on stage, at the Théâtre Pierre Fresnay in Ermont and the Théâtre des Arts in Cergy-Pontoise, in such various works as those choreographed by Marius Petipa and Norbert Schmucki. Accompanied by the Compagnie Norbert Schmucki and the Corps de Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris, they remind us of how magic their art seems. Those are truly unforgettable images
Guillem : portrait of the French ballet dancer Sylvie Guillem( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portrait of the world-acclaimed French dancer Sylvie Guillem, who was named Prima Ballerina at only 19. In 1981, Sylvie Guillem was hired in the corps de Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris, and two years later, at 18, she won the gold medal at the Varna International Ballet Competition. Her performance as Odette/Odile in Swan Lake convinced Rudolf Noureev to name her Prima Ballerina, and she became the youngest dancer to receive the prestigious title at the Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris. She decided to leave the Opéra de Paris in 1989 to focus on her international career. She worked with the greatest choreographers, allowing her to be awarded with many prizes and titles such as the Honorary Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, awarded by Queen Elisabeth II. Sylvie Guillem is currently guest soloist at the Royal Ballet, London. This documentary includes rehearsals, the preparation before stepping onto the stage, and key moments in the career of the dancer
