The étoiles, premiers danseurs and corps de ballet of the Opéra national de Paris With Rain, Anne Teresa de Kersmaeker , a major figure on the choreographic scene, gives us a work of rare intensity and refined purity.

For his first creation for the Opéra national de Paris Ballet, Jean-Guillaume Bart breathes new life into a long neglected work from the repertoire.

Poem by Maurice Maeterlinck

Lucrèce Borgia

Salle Richelieu Samedi 25 avril à 20h30

Victor Hugo
Denis Podalydès Stage director

Rusalka

Opéra Bastille Dimanche 26 avril à 14h30

Antonín Dvořák
Robert Carsen Stage director

In the twilight of his life, Dvořák threw himself unsparingly into this work of exalted lyricism. Robert Carsen directs the legend of the water spirit exiled among men in which the love of two beings from two very different worlds is stamped with the seal of impossibility.
