The narrative is simple and direct, but allied with ravishing choreography, delicious music and virtuoso dancing it becomes an unforgettable emotional experience, as moving today as it was when it was first seen in Paris in 1841.
As a French work, conceived, choreographed, composed and danced by French artists, it remains understandably, one of the most important cornerstones of the Company's repertoire. This production is seen as, by far, the most 'authentic' version of this masterpiece and a perfect showcase for this magnificent Company.
'Anyone lucky enough to have seen the Paris Opera Ballet on its first Australian visit will have a new benchmark for their ballet viewing.'
The Sydney Morning Herald
'Paris Opera Ballet unequivocally lived up to its reputation as one of the best classical companies on the planet, if not the best.'
