Main informations

<p>Jerome Robbins considered the Paris Opera Ballet as his second home after the New York City Ballet. This production in his honour brings together works displaying the infinite diversity of his sources of inspiration and his genius on stage. Be it in the energy of the large-scale&nbsp;<em>Glass Pieces</em>&nbsp;or the intimate sweetness of&nbsp;<em>Afternoon of a Faun</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>A Suite of Dances</em>, there emerges that rare capacity to make bodies follow the flow in a living comprehension of music. As the celebrated ballet&nbsp;<em>Fancy Free</em>, a veritable theatrical portrait of an era, enters the repertoire, Robbins reveals another facet of his talent.</p>
