Strapless

"Strapless" is a one-act ballet by Christopher Wheeldon, which tells a tale of ambition and hypocrisy around an original score by Mark-Anthony Turnage.

When the socialite Amelie Gautreau commissions a portrait from John Singer Sargent, he at first struggles to paint her. But then he finds inspiration from recollections of his lover Albert de Belleroche.

Unfortunately the portrait causes outrage at its first showing in Paris, and both she and Sargent are subsequently shunned by society. Sargent eventually manages to regain his position... but she dies an outcast.
