The National Opera of Russia pays tribute to Ravel's Bolero

The ballet and orchestra of the Russian National Opera will perform one of the biggest hits of the classical repertoire on the stage of the Palais des Congrès.

Created in 1928 at the Opéra Garnier in Paris, Bolero was originally music for a ballet commissioned by Russian ballerina Ida Rubinstein, a friend and patron of the composer. Immediately hailed by critics, Maurice Ravel's symphony become one of the most recognized pieces of music in the world. In almost 90 years of existence, it has been performed by leading orchestras under the baton of the greatest conductors and has inspired numerous choreographers, including Maurice Béjart. For this new homage, let yourself be carried away by the melody and the virtuosity of the dancers of the National Opera of Russia.
