Benjamin Millepied - Maurice Béjart Member

from 23 February 2018 to 24 March 2018

Place de la Bastille - 75012 Paris

Bastille - 12e Arrondissement


An exceptional love-themed programme from 23 February to 24 March 2018, in which the Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris perform Daphnis et Chloé and Boléro choreographed by Benjamin Millepied and Maurice Béjart to the flamboyant and heady music of French composer Maurice Ravel.

The dancer-choreographer Benjamin Millepied opens the dance with his modern version of the pastoral loves of Daphnis and Chloe presented for the first time in 2013 by the Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris with scenography by the artist Daniel Buren. A light and joyful ballet full of pas de deux and great ensemble movements in perfect harmony with the symphonic work of Ravel.

The bewitching and fiery Bolero, Maurice Béjart's emblematic work created in 1961, highlights the masterly performance of a soloist on a round table surrounded by dancers. An intense, powerful and sensual ballet with heady music. The ballet is interpreted alternately by the Etoiles Marie-Agnes Gillot, Amandine Albisson and Mathias Heymann.

A pure moment of grace not to be missed!

Opéra National de Paris - Opéra Bastille

The Opéra Bastille was designed by Carlos Ott, a Canadian-Uruguayan architect, in November 1983 after an international competition in which 1,700 architects participated. It was later opened on 13 July 1989.
The architecture is characterized by the transparency of its facade and the use of the same materials on both the interior and the exterior of the building.
With its 2,700-seat auditorium with homogeneous acoustics, unique stage equipment, integrated workshops, costumes and accessories, and work and rehearsal rooms, the Opéra Bastille is a great contemporary theatre.
