Nureyev at the Paris Opera
From November 23, 2018 to January 2, 2019
Opéra Bastille, Stalls level
Exhibition open to audiences during performances at the Opéra Bastille
On the occasion of the revival of Cinderella at the Opéra Bastille, the Paris Opera Ballet is paying tribute to Rudolf Nureyev. The choreographer, who would have been 80 this year, had a profound impact on the history of the repertoire which he enriched with his grand ballets, starting with Don Quichotte in 1981 all the way up to La Bayadère in 1992. Through a series of some fifty photographs, Rudolf Nureyev, Director of Dance at the Paris Opera from 1983 to 1989, is celebrated alongside his performers and the choreographers he invited. More than two decades after he left the Opera and prematurely passed away, the young Tatar who made France his home maintains an inspiringly strong presence within the Company and his works have retained all of their vibrancy.
