Grand Avignon Opera Ballet

Around the Love theme, the Ballet offer you to join it for a strolling representation. 

  • The love triangle, illustrated by a song of the « Jules et Jim » movie, sung by Jeanne Moreau, interpreted by three dancers  will begin this journey in the hall stairecase. In the “Mouette” room, on the Erik Sati music, the first and the third « Gymnopédies », a woman locked in the everyday life and routine of her couple, asks how breath again, one solution is offered to her…
  • On the door steps, the expression of the bodies that knot and unknot, that escape and hold back on the energy of the music of  Gluck’s « Danse des Furies » ( « Orphée et Eurydice » Opera extract) enable you to find the Ballet (12 dancers) again to close this little journey to discover a place through dance and music.
