The Paris Opera Ballet School, directed by Élisabeth Platel, presents its annual production. To mark the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Roland Petit, himself a pupil of the school, the young dancers are reviving his first ballet, Les Forains, which portrays a troupe of acrobats performing to a lively score by Henri Sauguet. In Un ballo, Jirí Kylián invites us to a ball where several couples are drawn together by the elegant music of Maurice Ravel. Lastly, Serge Lifar’s Suite en blanc brings his virtuoso grand neoclassical style to the stage. The Demonstrations offer the public the opprtunity to discover the many different interpretations of classical technique taught at the School. For the space of one evening, the “Gala des Écoles de danse du XXIe siècle” will also allow students from several international institutions to perform on the Palais Garnier stage.
