SF Dance Film Festival Opening Night: Queen + Béjart: Ballet For Life
Opening Night / North American Premiere
Ballet for Life was a unique collaboration between three huge cultural brands: Queen, Versace, and the visionary choreographer Maurice Béjart. At its heart is the loss of two legendary performers, Freddie Mercury and dancer Jorge Donn, both of whom died of AIDS in the early 1990s.
SFDFF invites you to join us in celebrating the North American premiere of Queen + Béjart: Ballet For Lifeby Lynne Wake and Simon Lupton, which 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, and Adam Lambert, Wayne Sleep and Arlene Philips, and of course incredible archive footage of Freddie Mercury, Maurice Béjart, Queen, and Gianni Versace.
