    Presentation

    The Paris Opera Ballet season opens with a unique and henceforth regular event: an exceptional gala bringing together the Étoiles, the Premiers Danseurs and the entire Corps de Ballet, not forgetting the pupils of the Ballet School.
    The dazzling programme includes the sumptuous Défilé du Ballet which opens up the stage to include the Foyer de la Danse, paying handsome tribute to Charles Garnier’s architectural intentions. Two new works join the repertoire to accompany George Balanchine’s Diamants, the choreographer’s tribute to the Russian school of dance: Hans van Manen’s Trois Gnossiennes and Faun by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, mysterious and delicate pas de deux where emotion flows out of music and movement. An evening that celebrates the talent and technique of the Company’s dancers.
