Performance of Parisian ballet to charm Hanoians

A night of ballet titled “Paris Ballet”, featuring a ballet dance crew from l'Opéra de Paris, the oldest national ballet company in the world will take place at the National Convention Center in Hanoi on June 11.

The show will introduce excerpts from nine ballets:  Roland Petit’s "Carmen," Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s "The Nutcracker," Adolphe Adam’s "Giselle," Marius Petipa’s "Don Quixote," Jerome Robbins’ "In the Night," José Martinez’s "Children of Paradise," Ivan Favier’s "No, I Don’t Regret Anything," Roland Petit’s "Proust or the Heart's Intermissions," and Angelin Preljocaj’s "The Park."

The art works present to audiences the classical Romanticist as well as Contemporary styles of French ballet, known for its elegance and refinement rather than its virtuosity.

The night will also feature the participation of the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra and Frédéric Fontan, the show’s art director.
