Aurélie Dupont
Director of Dance

Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris, the world's oldest ballet company, returns to Japan for the first time in three years. Since its foundation, it has continued to be one of the leading ballet companies in the world with an incomparable heritage and attitude towards incessant innovation. Aurélie Dupont leads the Company on the Japan tour for the second time as Director of Dance.

On this occasion, the Company brings two masterpieces, Giselle and Onegin. Giselle is a romantic ballet premiered in 1841 at the Académie royal de Musique, the forerunner of the Paris Opera. It has been one of the signature works of the Company's repertoire. Onegin, based on Alexander Puschkin's verse novel, is one of the greatest narrative ballets by John Cranko created for The Stuttgart Ballet. It will be the first time for the ballet to be performed in Japan by an overseas company other than The Stuttgart Ballet.

The tour begins on Thursday 27 February 2020. Don't miss the dazzling showcases for the ballet elite!
