Fate will do the rest. Discover or rediscover this masterpiece.

    LE SONGE D'UNE NUIT D'ÉTÉ

    Faithful to the Bard’s vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment.

    À BRAS-LE-CORPS

    The pounding of feet and the sound of breathing, be it heavy or light, lend rhythm to a dance whose very proximity with the spectator precludes any escape for the dancers and the audience. With time, this choreography has evolved to embrace the maturity of the two men, the dancers’ experience leaving greater place for lightness, irony and energy.

    BÉATRICE AND BENEDICT

    From bickering and disputes to wars of words and fleeting glances, Béatrice and Bénédict can hardly bear each other’s presence and yet both constantly seek ways to be together. With two strong temperaments, as irritating as they are endearing, theirs is a passion that arouses the doubts of those who by stratagem reveal a love that only the protagonists managed to ignore…

    BASTIEN ET BASTIENNE

    Diggi, daggi, shurry, murry, horum, harum: with those magical words, the young shepherd Bastien will be able to reconquer the heart of his beloved shepherdess Bastienne… Mozart composed this short singspiel at the age of 12. In this new production by Mirabelle Ordinaire, resident director at the Paris Opera Academy last season, the action is transposed to a modern fairground where the fairgoers have come to the shooting gallery to shoot at cardboard wolves. The flighty Bastien has become the mechanic charged with maintaining the stands while the twelve musicians play on their bandstand … Presented in a new French version which remains faithful to Mozart’s artistic sensibilities, the opera has been adapted to make it immediately comprehensible to all audiences.

    It's the moment all cycling fans have been waiting for, the last stage of the Tour de France, and the finishing line on the beautiful Avenue des Champs-Elysées in the heart of Paris. After more than three weeks of racing, through Normandy and Brittany in particular, the riders can finally push for home and celebrate the winner of the coveted yellow jersey. After having negotiated the 113 last kilometres separating Chantilly and Paris, the peloton will embark on the final circuit at the heart of the French capital. From Place de la Concorde, to the Champs-Elysées, the Quai des Tuileries, and back to the Champs-Elysées, you can cheer on the hardy riders as they whizz several times round this last circuit. This final test is usually in the hands of the sprinters, however the rest of the pack will be hoping to upset the apple cart. One thing is certain, the yellow jersey is sure to remain the property of the leader of the Tour, who can celebrate his title on the Champs-Elysées after having crossed the finish line of the Tour de France.

    LA VEUVE JOYEUSE

    A ball at the Pontevedrian Embassy in Paris is the scene of political and romantic intrigue. The fortune of widow Hanna Glawari needs to remain on Pontevedrian soil and a marriage with her fellow countryman, Count Danilo, would guarantee the country’s stability. An ideal match but not the easiest to secure… Underpinning a whirlwind plot never far removed from dance, Franz Lehár’s score, in true Viennese tradition, displays a degree of orchestral and melodic refinement rarely attained in operetta. Waltzes, mazurkas and polkas set the pace in a production that, transposed to the 1920s, celebrates the splendours of a bygone world whilst raising the curtain on its fragility.

    COSI FAN TUTTE

    In entrusting the production of the first opera in its new Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy to Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, the Paris Opera has chosen an intimate marriage between song and dance. With her outstanding talent for highlighting the underlying geometry of musical works, the choreographer will be working with a double cast of both singers and dancers, transforming the stage of the Palais Garnier into a space in which the lovers, having made a wager with a philosopher straight out of the Enlightenment, undergo an experience both alchemical and emotional. Their bodies resemble the pairs of elements evoked by Goethe in Elective Affinities: they seem inseparable until a foreign body disrupts their equilibrium and creates new liaisons.

To complete this luminous picture and bring a festive air, the Paris Opera has called upon the designer Christian Lacroix. Who better to bring to life Balanchine’s dream through sets and costumes than this creator of beauty?

    BALANCHINE / TESHIGAWARA / BAUSCH

    Two works by Stravinsky, both written for dance, come together: one caused a scandal at its first performance, the other marked the beginning of a new collaboration with George Balanchine. Agon has no scenario other than the score and translates into pure, abstract dance with a linear geometric quality that echoes the world’s title. In her version of The Rite of Spring, Pina Bausch urges the score’s rhythmic power to burst forth. On an earth‑covered stage, possessed by an intense energy, the dancers engage in a deeply‑moving ritual. Alongside these two masterpieces, Saburo Teshigawara has been commissioned to create a new work giving substance to a profound, organic and poetic language on Esa‑Pekka Salonen’s haunting Violin Concerto.
