You have always wanted to cry in front of a ballet? Good news for opera-addicts: Sunday night, Arte is featuring a spectacular documentary where you can discover excerpts from mythical spectacles presented at the Garnier Opera.
Because it’s been 300 years that star dances have been making their audiences dream at the Opéra de Paris. A birthday that makes it worth looking the joyful little rats of the Opeara more closely...
This spectacular show will be punctuated by documentaries filmed in the amazing Palais Garnier setting, but also at the dance school of Nanterre.
For history buffs, rediscover the first Ballet school...at the Château de Versailles ! Because it’s XIV who initiated this sublime arty training.
We like: not having to break our piggybank to watch the pirouettes on stage of the Little Rats, the Stars and the Ballet Corps. Possible catch up sessions on arteliveweb.com/grainesdetoiles
Sunday 28 avril 2013 Gala du tricentenaire de l’Ecole Française de Danse at 8h45pm
Graines d’étoiles at 4h20pm, on Arte
