George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, that is his masters Benjamin Millepied wanted to pay tribute: tribute to two great choreographers, both of Russian origin, who took the American school and dance in general to new heights rarely achieved. With Opus 19 / The Dreamer, The Paris Opera Ballet's repertoire is enriched by a piece of great elegance on the Violin Concerto No. 1 by Sergei Prokofiev. The waking dream of a young man and his surreal counterpoint conceived by Jerome Robbins in 1979. As next, the resumption of Theme and Variations by George Balanchine to music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, shows another side of dance Outre Atlantic. This classic ballet group and virtuoso, one of the most difficult repertoire, also wants a tribute to the Imperial Ballet of old Russia and its most famous master Marius Petipa. Between these two masterpieces, Benjamin Millepied was a ballet with both the company and its project to dance at the Paris Opera. Fruit of an artistic collaboration with composer Nico Muhly, this very contemporary creation also wants to show the excellence of the classical technique and its importance to the dance today.
