Official Event Listing

New Production! Three contemporary choreographers come together for an exciting mixed programme.

Canadaian Crystal Pite's dazzling The Seasons’ Canon, set to music by Max Richter, thrilled audiences at the Palais Garnier last season. Spain’s Iván Pérez occupies the stage of the Opera for the first time with a creation for ten male dancers. To conclude the bill, Israel’s Hofesh Shechter, often lauded for his telluric, trance-evoking dances, offers a new version of his piece The Art of Not Looking Back.
