The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) is proud to partner with the American Friends of the Paris Opera & Ballet (AFPOB) to present the sixth consecutive season of The Paris Opera & Ballet HD screenings, bringing the company’s premier music and dance productions to New York audiences.
Commissioned by the Paris Opera Ballet in 1994, Le Parc has become a beloved mainstay in the company’s repertoire. The ballet strikes a balance between the classical genius of Mozart paired with Angelin Preljocaj‘s modern choreography. The setting is an elegant French‑style garden, with dancers wearing carefully crafted costumes evoking the Age of Enlightenment. Viewers enter a highly contrasted universe and are quickly swept up in a seductive tale of love.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with choreographer Angelin Preljocaj, moderated by Wendy Perron, dance critic and editor-in-chief of Dance Magazine from 2004 to 2013.
Approx. 2 hours including Q&A
