They were distinguished for their performances at concerts of the Academy and their roles of la Mère and le Chat in L’Enfant et les sortilèges by Maurice Ravel.

AROP – The Friends of the Paris National Opera, supports the Paris Opera projects and promotes emerging artists of the Paris Opera.

Since 1986, AROP awards both a young female and a young male dancer from the Paris Opera Ballet who performed important variations of the repertoire on stage. The Ballet Prize is backed for ten years by the generous support of Mrs Jeannine Auber, who wished to encourage new generations of dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet and to pass on her passion for dance, thanks to the legacy she left to AROP.

Since 1998, AROP awards the Opera Prize to both a female singer and a male singer from the Paris Opera Academy, based on their performances and concerts during the past season.
