QPAC INTERNATIONAL SERIES 2020
PARIS OPERA BALLET
1 TO 19 JULY 2020
The oldest national ballet company, Paris Opera Ballet is regarded as one of the most preeminent ballet companies in the world today.
This July and only in Queensland, audiences will enjoy the epitome of classical ballet in Rudolf Nureyev’s Swan Lake, performed by a company at the very peak of its powers. The company will also perform a spectacular Opening Gala of classical and contemporary highlights from the Paris Opera Ballet repertoire, and to round out the 2020 Series, Paris Opera Ballet will perform Parisienne Soirée, featuring unanimously acclaimed contemporary works by William Forsythe, Jerome Robbins and Crystal Pite to showcase the company’s dancing depth and introduce a new swathe of dance superstars for their Australian debuts.
