Swan Lake: Paris Opera Ballet
Paris, Opéra Bastille — Main Auditorium
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.
