Squeaky Door

Originally entitled Forme et Ligne, Squeaky Door (as it has become known) was created on Maina Gielgud by Maurice Béjart in 1970. The choreography is set to four sections from Pierre Henry’s Variations pour une Porte et un Soupir. Filmed at the National Opera and Ballet in Amsterdam, this video shows Gielgud coaching Mariinsky Ballet first soloist Maria Khoreva in the solo.
