At the end of 2014, Benjamin Millepied was appointed Directeur du Ballet at Opéra national de Paris. While preparing the programme of his first season (15/16), he directed 17 short portraits of 17 principal dancers of the Opera, shot in the incredible and sometimes unknown spaces of Opera Garnier and Opera Bastille.

A unique collection to (re)discover some of the best dancers in the world.
