Jerome Robbins

Theatre in Paris' Top Shows for October 2023

Jerome Robbins & Giselle

The Opéra Garnier invites you into its ornate hall to spend the evening with choreographer Jerome Robbins. Through three of his beloved pieces, you will discover Robbins’ incredible talent, which, even after his death, maintains his status as a major figure in American neoclassical dance. Among Robbins’ most famous works is the world-renowned West Side Story - an iconic musical, for which his quintessential choreography continues to captivate audiences to this day. On the other hand, the 19th-century ballet Giselle remains a masterpiece of grace, emotion, and technique today.
Through its story and dance, enter into a world of romance, nobility, and betrayal. Whether you’re a fan of classical ballet or discovering the genre for the very first time, Giselle promises to captivate and amaze with its subtle choreography, haunting score, and breathtaking performance.
