Opéra de Paris, a (very) special season

The Paris Opera Ballet is one of the most active dance companies in the world. The dancers, used to practicing 5 to 7 hours a day, develop themselves by working with coaches and choreographers, but first and foremost through a close relationship with their audience. 

But in 2020, the pandemic radically changed their artistic life. They had never stayed away for so long from the rehearsal studios and from the stage of the Palais Garnier and the Opéra Bastille. 

This film witnesses a unique moment in the history of the Ballet and follows the dancers from their first day back in the studios, to the reopening of the venues, and through the rehearsals of Rudolf Nureyev’s La Bayadère.

BONUS : Interview with Aurélie Dupont
Rehearsals from La Bayadère with Hugo Marchand, Amandine Albisson, Mathias Heymann
