The stage of the International Dance Gala Les Étoiles shines in the irresistible light of its stars: since its first edition in 2015, the Gala has become an unmissable opportunity for all ballet lovers to admire the extraordinary technique and charisma of top dancers from the world’s best theatres. In addition to the evergreens of the great academic repertoire, the programme increasingly offers modern and contemporary choreographies by the most prominent authors. It is an exuberant mix, capable of concentrating in one show the best pas de deux from the Romantic tradition, and the most dizzying ones from the contemporary scene: what better message of beauty and peace than the universal language of dance?
