Introducing the new Chagall & l'Opera de Paris: Tribute to Adam

As you know by now after une unique Chagall Tribute to the Great Composers whose enamel dial was a reproduction of the Paris Opera Garnier ceiling painted by Chagall in 1964, VC decided to create 14 unique pieces each representing one of the composers depicted in Chagalls original painting.

Here is the 2nd of the series representing Adam's Giselle as painted by Chagall.

The archetypal romantic music, Giselle is the oldest ballet in the classical repertoire and stems from the convergence of numerous creative sources: Spain, Germany, Italy and France. Dominated by a dazzling shade of yellow, Chagall’s interpretation testifies to the melodic richness of Adam’s work. Faithfully reproduced on the painted dial of the Métiers d’Art watch using the enamelled miniature technique, it echoes the theme of the ballet-pantomime composed in 1841 based on a libretto by Théophile Gautier: love that is stronger than death, embodied by the Wills, the ghosts of young girls, part sylphs and part sprites, who lure their former lovers to their doom.
