André MALRAUX (Maurice BEJART) Lettre dactylographiée et signée à Maurice Béjart

André MALRAUX (Maurice BEJART)

Lettre dactylographiée et signée à Maurice Béjart

29 janvier 1969, 21x27cm, une feuille filigranée Guerimand Voiron.


Letter typed and signed from André Malraux to Maurice Béjart. One leaf headed by the Ministre d'Etat chargé des Affaires Culturelles (Ministry of Culture), bearing a stamp from 29 January 1969.
André Malraux hopes to place choreographer Maurice Béjart in charge of the Ballet de l'Opéra in Paris.
Béjart was at the time very well established in Brussels, as part of his troop Ballet du XXe siècle, performing at the Théâtre de la Monnaie, led by his friend Maurice Huismans. Following a report by Jean Vilar to reform the Opéra in Paris, Malraux takes the decision to call Béjart back to France: "J'aimerais que nous puissions nous rencontrer pour parler d'un projet que vous connaissez déjà et auquel j'attache une grande importance : la Direction de la Danse à l'Opéra" "I would like us to be able to meet to talk about a project that you already know and to which I attach a great significance: the Management of Dance at the Opéra." Malraux's idea was to name Boulez and Jean Vilar alongside him, thus forming a solid avant-garde, resolutely oriented towards the future of the arts. The choreographer declined the offer and continued his creations in Belgium. He becomes no less an admirer of Malraux to whom he will dedicate, fifteen years later, a ballet using Beethoven's music, which he entitled "Malraux ou la métamorphose des dieux." 
This letter is the only testimony existing to Malraux's request to the choreographer, which remained controversial. This nomination was not accepted by Béjart, who stayed in Belgium for ten years before heading to Lausanne.
Provenance: Maurice Béjart's personal archives.
