January 12, 2017 — Reset documents the creation of the ballet “Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward,” an intricate, abstract and inventive ballet, choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, who had been named Artistic Director of the Paris Opera Ballet, the oldest ballet company in the world. The piece would be shown at the company’s first fund-raising gala after the appointment of Millepied, who was expected to infuse the highly-respected but staid company with a fresh new perspective.
The ballet is a beautiful, fluid creation, a triumph of interlacing movements and rhythms.
