Published on 5 February 2019 in Entertainment
Among all the classic ballets, Swan Lake, a magnificent drama based on a popular legend, is undoubtedly the best known. The Opéra National de Paris shines the spotlight on it this winter in the legendary hall of the Opéra Bastille. This is an opportunity for you to (re) discover a true masterpiece.
All the beauty of ballet - Swan Lake
Set to the music of Tchaikovsky, the legend of the white bird is enhanced by Rudolf Nureyev's classical choreography. The rigour and precision of each movement gives rise to powerful emotions that combine sadness with nostalgia, the power of love and the strength of destiny. Known for its daring choices, the Paris Opera brings back one of ballet's best-loved and most symbolic presentations.
Opera Bastille - a real experience
This exceptional production of Swan Lake is also your chance to enter a space that made the headlines during its inauguration in 1989. Filled with thousands of gold accents and adorned with French art belonging to the Opera Garnier, the contemporary architecture and suspended balconies of the rectangular room will fascinate you as much as they astonish. You will enjoy its perfect acoustics and you can browse the vast common areas, stairs and fireplaces that create unique perspectives and visual effects. Why not take advantage of the opportunity to book a guided tour of the Opera House?
Swan Lake, danced by the stars of the Paris Opera, is undoubtedly one of the cultural events of the start of the year in Paris. Tickets can already be book for one of the evenings between February 16 and March 19, 2019.
