about


Two creations enrich the Paris Opera Ballet’s repertoire in the space of an evening devoted to modernity. For the first time, Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite is gracing the stage of the Paris Opera with a piece choreographed to the music of Max Richter, a composer with a penchant for revisiting the works of Vivaldi. She shares the bill with her former mentor, William Forsythe, who hired her at the Frankfurt Ballet in 1995. Blake Works I, developed in collaboration with the rising star of British electro music, James Blake, is the choreographer’s latest creation for the Company. Justin Peck’s In Creases leads the dancers into the musical undulations of Philip Glass. Like particles smashed by the irresistible forces of attraction and repulsion, they seem to form molecular sequences in perpetual motion. Last but not least, the artist Tino Sehgal, famous for his exhibition installations, is working for the first time with the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet to stage and direct the performers in the public areas of the Palais Garnier before ending the evening in the main auditorium.
