La danse - Le ballet de l'Opéra de Paris

Yesterday I watched this amazing documentary about the Paris Opera Ballet.  I had been meaning to see it forever now! And it was playing on tv.  I loved seeing all of the different choreography and peices they worked on in the film. 
All you dancers out their if you havn't seen it yet I would suggest you do! And people who aren't dancers but can appreciate the art of ballet and morden comtemporary ballet should watch it as well!

I definitly got goosbumps during on the the last dances.  This woman is dancing on stage with two children also on stage sitting in front of her.  She danced with such feeling, and then in the end she picks up a bucked and the kids stand up and she starts throwing red liquidy paint stuff at them.  They lay their on the floor with buckets on their heads, dead, and she moves, lost in a world of her own.

Hope you all are having a great week! Happy Wednesday! Next Wednesday I am going to on my way to BERLIN!! =) yay!

Love Sigrid


  1. Absolutely love the Paris Opera Ballet. Their "Sylvia" (John Neumeier) is one of my favorites, and I loved their Balanchine "Rubies". Marie Agnes Gillot has AMAZING lines ... and I love some of their male dancers though forget the names.

  2. Yes they are beautiful have you seen them live? that sounds so amazing! <3 Sylvia is a great ballet. I have never seen it live. =(

  3. Haven't seen them live (yet!). But a ballet friend who lives both in Paris and CA takes open classes there. Am so envious ...
