The production aims to restitute a feeling of Paris, and the strong emotions that the City felt almost a century ago when Ravel premiered his masterpieces,
A splendid rendezvous of music and dance, of classical and contemporary, of tradition and novelty, featuring the splendors of the 19th and early 20th century, within the vitality of the artists of 2012.
