The inspiration for this work was a composition entitled Nunc Dimittis by Arvo Pärt. The fact that the ballet is set to religious music gives it a mystical, supernatural dimension. Pärt wrote the music to the Canticle of Simeon, but this is an abstract ballet. There are no characters as such, do not expect to see the Virgin Mary, Jesus or Simeon. I would like to stress that this ballet was also inspired by Ekaterina Borchenko (prima ballerina of the Mikhailovsky ballet): Nunc Dimittis is being created with her in mind and for her.
Nacho Duato, January 2011

World première: Mikhailovsky Theatre, 15 June 2011 

Prelude is an interpretation of the emotions and impressions which he experienced at the start of a new period of his life — in Russia, in St. Petersburg and with the Mikhailovsky Theatre. The new ballet is not based on one particular subject. The meeting of classical ballet and contemporary dance — two very different worlds, striving for mutual awareness and understanding — form its conceptual core. For all its apparent simplicity, the name of the ballet can be interpreted in a number of different ways. Indeed, its meaning is not just limited to the musical term. It can be assumed that in his new performance, Duato shall attempt to convey every emotional nuance accompanying the convergence of two opposing sources, and their subsequent merging, giving rise to a new life.
