In few words:
"Dances are just flowers, and flowers grow without any literal meaning, they are just beautiful. - George Balanchine"
This truly exceptional and festive evening, the opening Gala of the 2015/2016 season brings together all the artists of the Paris Opera: the Ballet, the Ballet School, the Orchestra and the Chorus under the Director of Dance Benjamin Millepied and Musical Director Philippe Jordan. The programme opens with Benjamin Millepied’s creation Clear, Loud, Bright, Forward to music by Nico Muhly and continues with George Balanchine’s homage to Marius Petipa, Thème et Variations, bringing together the Russian, French and American Schools of Dance. To close the evening the "Défilé du Corps de Ballet" is set to the "Entry of the Guests" from Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser.
