Season 2023-24 / Coreographer

Lorca Massine



Born in New York, son of Léonide Massine, Lorca Massine has studied and collaborated with the greatest choreographers of our time: Balanchine, Béjart, and Léonide Massine.
He has inherited his father's penchant for story ballets and combined this with his unusual ability of illustrating contemporary themes in dance using the classical idiom.
He has choreographed more than fifty ballets and musical productions. The original version
of Zorba, which premiered at the Arena of Verona, has been seen in more than thirty five countries by over three million enthusiastic spectators. Massine's undertaking of the
APASSIONATA-Ovations Tour, an equine choreographic extravaganza, set new standards!
His works have been in the repertoires of internationally acclaimed companies such as New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theater, the Birmingham Royal Ballet, Béjart's Ballet of the Twentieth Century, and the Paris Opera Ballet, and have been performed on the stages of international opera houses from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York to Teatro alla Scala
(Milan), Teatro la Fenice (Venice),Teatro San Carlo (Naples), Teatro dell'Opera (Rome), Teatro Carlo San Felice (Genoa), Teatro Massimo (Palermo), the Royal Opera House at Covent
Garden (London), and the Arena di Verona.
Lorca Massine is also the heir to Léonide Massine's vast heritage. His stagings of his father's ballets have been performed at the Paris Opera, American Ballet Theater, the Pennsylvania Ballet, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, the Birmingham Royal Ballet, the Royal Winnepeg Ballet, the Boston Ballet, Bavarian State Ballet, Vienna State Ballet, and in 2005 three works of Léonide Massine
entered the repertoire of the Bolshoi Ballet.
