Paris, the city of Love, the city of Lights, is also the city of Ballet, where the art form was born, courtesy of Louis XIV, four centuries ago.
Paris Ballet Legends, directed by Artistic Director Frederic Fontan, is a tribute to both Paris and the artists who were inspired by it: Petit to Carné, Petipa to Piaf, and Bizet to Prévert. Each piece in Paris Ballet Legends has an intimate link to the City of Lights.

These most amazing pas de deux flirts with different styles and stories: the romantic Giselle, the contemporary Non je ne regrette rien, the brilliant classic Black Swan, the daring Carmen Toujours! and néo-ballet La dame aux Camelias… The first half climaxes with three couples in multi-award winning – and true Paris-lover – Jerome Robbins’ In the Night danced to Chopin’s Nocturnes performed live by acclaimed French pianist Henri Barda.

A wonderful cast of Etoiles, international dancers, and acclaimed pianist Henri Barda instill this collection of dances with love, grace and passion.

Agnes Letestu, Stephane Bullion and  Josua Hoffalt, Étoiles from Paris Ballet Opera
