Opus 19/The Dreamer

The Paris Opera Ballet is all the richer for the inclusion of Opus19 /  The Dreamer in its repertoire. This elegant piece, imagined by Jerome  Robbins in 1979, is a variation for two dancers to Sergei Prokofiev’s  First Violin Concerto, portraying the daydream of a young man and his  unreal counterpart.

Bataillon, Vincent

Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris

The Paris Opéra Ballet is the official ballet company of the Opéra national de Paris, otherwise known as the Palais Garnier, though known more popularly simply as the Paris Opéra. Its origins can be traced back to 1661 with the foundation of the Académie Royale de Danse and the Le Ballet de l'Opéra in 1713 by King Louis XIV of France.

The aim of the Académie Royale de Danse was to reestablish the perfection of dance. In the late seventeenth century, using 13  professional dancers to drive the academy, the Paris Opéra Ballet  successfully transformed ballet from court entertainment to a  professional performance art for the masses. It later gave birth to the  Romantic Ballet, the classical form of ballet known throughout the world. The Paris Opéra Ballet dominated European  ballet throughout the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and  remains a leading institution in the art of ballet today.
