Based on French writer HonorÃ© de Balzac's novel, Lost Illusions is a new ballet created by celebrated choreographer Alexei Ratmansky set against the backdrop of 19th century Paris. Ratmansky, along with French dramaturge Guillaume Gallienne, tells the story of a young composer lured away from his friends and his love by the prospects of fame and money. This stylized adaptation of Balzac's timeless novel blends ambition, disillusionment and thwarted love, while exploring themes of human nature and restless youth, set to a spellbinding original score.
