Krzysztof Warlikowski introduced the very first version of this grand opera in five acts Don Carlos, which Verdi himself amended for the work’s world premiere in 1867. Philippe Jordan conducts an exceptional cast that includes Ildar Abdrazakov, Jonas Kaufmann, Ludovic Tézier, Sonya Yoncheva and Elīna Garanča.

Ebullient figure in the world of contemporary dance, Alexander Ekman has been invited for the first time to work with the Paris Opera Ballet. In his new creation Play, set to music by Mikael Karlsson, the Swedish choreographer gives us a surprising production carried along by a lively rhythm and an innately communicative energy.

Philippe Jordan presents a Tchaikovsky Cycle during which he conducts the six Symphonies in three concerts given by the Paris Opera Orchestra at the Opéra Bastille and the Philharmonie de Paris.

• La Bohème / Giacomo Puccini, staging by Claus Guth, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, with Nicole Car, Aida Garifullina, Atalla Ayan, Artur Ruciński and Alessio Arduini
