About

In few words:

“One of our own”, trained at the Paris Opera School of Dance, Roland Petit soon left the company to pursue his chosen pathway as a choreographer and performer. It was with his own company that he first enjoyed success and he did not return to the Paris Opera until 1955 and his premier production of Notre-Dame de Paris. There followed several years of unbroken collaboration, some of them stormy, with new works and new productions. To mark the tenth anniversary of his death, the Opera Ballet pays tribute to him with three of his mythical works: the sulphurous Carmen, the success of which in 1949 catapulted Roland Petit and Zizi Jeanmaire to international fame; Le Jeune Homme et la Mort, a disturbing duet imagined around a libretto by Jean Cocteau and Le Rendez-vous based on a text by Prévert, with sets by Brassaï that bring Fifties Paris back to life. Three works that testify to the choreographer's highly individual trademark: theatrical pieces constructed around literary characters, bringing together on the same stage some of the great artists of the period.
