Les Italiens de l’Opéra de Paris

2 Jul 2017

A fierce, talented Little Italy exists within the Opéra de Paris’ temple of Ballet, which issued from the Académie Royale de Danse, founded in 1661 by Sun King.

This exclusive performance includes an anthology of solos and pas de deux drawn from the great classical repertoire as well as pieces of contemporary dance. A Gala evening and an opportunity to witness the outstanding artistic importance of Italian dancers who work abroad. The performance's vibrancy issues from the pure elegance of French style combined with an Italian heartbeat, further enhanced by the presence of Marie Agnès Gillot, who has danced with the Opéra de Paris corps de ballet since 1989. The show was supported by Orsolina28 and staged at the Teatro Civico di Moncalvo.

The event is part of the 2017 Vignale Monferrato Festival
