Ballet for Life is a unique collaboration between three huge cultural brands: Queen, Versace and the visionary choreographer Maurice Béjart.
Queen + Bejart: Ballet for Life by Lynne Wake and Simon Lupton tells the story of the creation and subsequent success of the ballet featuring the great and the good of both rock and ballet, including: Brian May and Roger Taylor, Wayne Sleep and Arlene Phillips and of course incredible archive footage of Freddie Mercury, Maurice Béjart, Queen and Gianni Versace. This film marks the ultimate fusion of Queen’s sweeping emotional melodies and the timeless ethereal grace and movement of ballet. It is the first and only time a full length ballet has been paired to rock music albeit peppered with some equally well known pieces from Mozart.
A full length performance of Ballet For Life, recorded at Salle Métropole, Lausanne in 1997 accompanies the documentary. Also included as a bonus feature is The Making Of from 1997.
