Paris Opera Ballet at Bolshoi Theatre

Filmed during POB tour to Moscow in 2013. Very good documentary imo, you realize how massive and complex it is the preparation for touring especially for 2 act ballet with grand decors like Paquita. Starting from the rehearsal of the dancers and POB school student, the logistics of the props, the orchestra, the costumes, etc. You can also see the backstage view during the performance and some dancing from Mathias Heymann, Ludmila Pagliero, Alice Renavand and Florian Magnenet.

Opera Ballet School pupils stand in the foyer de la danse before rehersal for the “Générale” performance at Opera Garnier on April 12, 2013 in Paris, France.
