Play (saison 17/18) © Ann Ray / Opéra National de Paris


Come and discover Play, a unique contemporary ballet by the young choreographer Alexander Ekman. Full of rhythm and energy, Play is two hours of visual entertainment: zany costumes, imaginative scenes - dancers plunge into thousands of foam balls falling from the sky – a lively musical score and bright colours serve a style unique to Ekman. The Swedish choreographer has distilled his passion in companies all over the world, in both new works or classic works revisited such as his famous adaptation of Swan Lake in 2017.
