Due for release on April 7th 2023, Mythologies is Thomas Bangalter's first opus for orchestra, through which the co-founder of Daft Punk reinvents his relationship to composition. Conceived upon invitation of choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the ballet of the same name, this large and lyrical work is performed by the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine under the direction of Romain Dumas. 

The full-evening 90-minute ballet was performed with ten dancers from the Opera National de Bordeaux and ten from the Compagnie Angelin Preljocaj, accompanied by the orchestra of the Opéra National de Bordeaux conducted by Romain Dumas. Following its premiere at the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux in July 2022, the production undertook a 37-date tour to Biarritz, Lyon, Antibes, Aix-en-Provence, Rouen, and travelled to the Festival Aperto in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Autumn 2022 saw a sequence of sold-out performances at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris with the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris. The ballet is scheduled for a further run at the Théâtre National de Marseilles between 8 and 11 June this year.

"I consider music composition to be an experimental and empirical attempt to solve a mysterious equation. Yet the result remains transcendent, far beyond the limits of experience."
Thomas Bangalter
