Paris Opéra Ballet

Considered “one of the world’s greatest companies,” (Ballet News UK) the Paris Opéra Ballet makes its Chicago debut in a week-long engagement, launching the company’s 2012 North American Tour with their first American performances in more than a decade.

The full 154-member company will perform two diverse programs—Giselle, and a program of mixed repertoire to include Suite en blanc by Serge Lifar, Roland Petit’s L’Arlésienne, and Le Boléro by Maurice Béjart—accompanied by the Grant Park Orchestra in a first-ever collaboration with the Harris Theater.
