BALLET FOR LIFE celebrates the lives, work and talent of legendary performers Freddie Mercury, the former principal dancer of Maurice Béjart's Ballet, Jorge Donn and fashion designer Gianni Versace.

BALLET FOR LIFE is a love affair with the music of 'Queen'. Inventions, violence, humanity, love, hope, youth is all there..

BALLET FOR LIFE was created after choreographer Maurice Béjart, founder and director of the Béjart Lausanne Ballet Company, contacted 'Queen' after seeing the album cover of Freddie Mercury's posthumous album 'Made In Heaven'. Bejart, who died in 2007, said he wanted to create a ballet to celebrate the life of Freddie Mercury.

"It's really a love story. I'm in love with Queen's music. Freddie Mercury died one year before my lead dancer Jorge Donn died in similar circumstances and something came together," Béjart said in an interview that is part of a documentary about Ballet for Life.
