Cast Change: Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris 2024 Japan Tour (February 2024)
We have just learned from the Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris that Amandine Albisson is regrettably unable to perform in Le Lac des cygnes on Sunday 11 February due to health reasons. Étoile Sae Eun Park will now replace her to dance in the role of Odette/Odile with Jérémy-Loup Quer.

We apologize to our valued audiences who have been anticipating the appearance of Amandine Albisson, but appreciate everyone's kind understanding. At the same time, we hope you will enjoy the wonderful duet by Sae Eun Park and Jérémy-Loup Quer.

Statement from Director of Dance José Martinez
It is with regret that I announce that Amandine Albisson, Étoiles of the Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris, has had to withdraw from the Company's upcoming tour to Japan for personal reasons. We are sorry about this cancellation which is a disappointing news for our Japanese audience.

On the other hand, I am pleased to announce our Étoile Sae Eun Park will replace Amandine Albisson. Sae Eun Park will dance the performance of Le Lac des cygnes on 11 February with our "premier danseur" Jérémy-Loup Quer. We are sure this will be an exciting and beautiful performance and a wonderful opportunity to discover a talented and promising artist beside one of our Étoiles who has been acclaimed in this role.
