We are delighted to present, in July 2023, Un Soir à l'Opéra--Gala Tribute to Nureyev with two programs, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev's passing.

The gala will be presented by the fourteen star dancers of the Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris including six Étoiles such as Mathias Heymann, Germain Louvet and Hannah O'Neill who has recently been promoted to Étoile. They will be led by Florence Clerc, the former Étoile during the Nureyev's tenure as artistic director.
