The Paris Opera Ballet, though historically and famously a classical ensemble, proved over the years to be perfectly at ease with the demands and the subtilities of the contemporary repertoire.
A tribute to its dazzling technique and unique style, this collector box-set features three milestones in the recent history of the French company:
Pina Bausch’s "Orpheus and Eurydice", a “Tribute to Jerome Robbins”, ten years after his passing, and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s "Rain".
All these programs were filmed at the Palais Garnier, a world-famous temple of classical ballet: a way to insure the continuity between the masterpieces of yesterday, and those of today.
