New official POB site

Recommended Posts

On the Paris Opera site, there is now a new subsite dedicated especially to the ballet:


So there is (at last!) a list of all the dancers of a company, biographies and photographs of the étoiles and premiers danseurs (but I'd like to see some biographies and photographs of the corps de ballet dancers).

It also includes a list of all the étoiles since that grade was officially created in 1940 (Lycette Darsonval being the first étoile), and some information about the history of the company, with a few nice little pictures and photographs

(like Zambelli and Staats in "Javotte", Spessivtseva in "Giselle", Renault and Chauviré in "Les Mirages", Ritz and Toumanova in "Palais de Cristal"... But it's a pity they can't be enlarged).

Balletstar811, not every single dancer pictured has brown hair. Principal Elisabeth Maurin is blonde as well soloist Eleonora Abbagnato. And only principals and soloists are pictured, not the corps de ballet, and there are a lot of blonde dancers in it, Severine Westermann and Emilie Hasboun eg
