ABOUT THE SHOW

An evening of French dance courtesy of four prestigious companies.

The idea of bringing together some of France’s leading companies in a single evening was born at the height of the Covid period. The first edition will take place in autumn 2020, with performances by the Ballets de l’Opéra national de Paris, the Opéra national de Bordeaux, the Opéra national de Lyon, the Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse and the Malandain Ballet Biarritz.

For this second edition, FrancenDanses has given carte blanche to the company from Bordeaux who are joined this time by the dancers of the Opéra National de Paris, the Opéra National du Rhin and also the Ballet Preljocaj, each presenting a solo or duet programme performed by dancers from their respective companies.

A joyful upbeat and varied evening showcasing a wide variety of French talent.

Co-production with the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées
