About the Event
The Paris Opera Ballet performs Rudolf Nureyev's masterful version of 'Swan Lake' at the Bastille Opera House.
For his first ballet, 'Swan Lake', Tchaikovsky drew on ancient Nordic legends of young girls transformed into swans by a terrible curse. In 1895, Marius Petipa gave the work his own choreographic interpretation, in which he created a display of majestic figures for the female corps de ballet, giving birth to the myth of the swan‐dancer, the ballerina par excellence. Nureyev's version, created for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984, added psychological depth to the characters.
Please note: Dress code on December 31st is black tie.

The Opèra Bastille was inaugurated in 1989 as a sister house to the Opèra Garnier. Both part of the National Opera of Paris, the Bastille was built with the aim of establishing an "affordable people's opera house". Located at the Place de la Bastille next to the magnificent July Column, the building has a distinctly futuristic look with its glass facade and steel design elements. The main auditorium seats up to 2,700 people, and primarily presents performances of opera, as well as occasional ballets and symphonic concerts . Two smaller stages host chamber music and recitals.
