Sleeping Beauty at the Paris Opera House

I really wanted to title this post « David Hallberg’s Amazing Coup de Pied » but I wasn’t sure if that would be a title anyone would really understand, let alone click on to read the post. Chéri took me to the ballet at the Opera de Paris (this time at the Bastille opera house). I was disappointed that the show wasn’t… Read more →

La Source – « Le public n’a pas de fesses »

I went to see the ballet La Source recently at the Garnier Opera house, one of my favorite places in Paris as many of you know! And I was once again dazzled and amazed by the beauty of the production they put on. The phrase « Le public n’a pas de fesses » means literally that the audience doesn’t have a rear… Read more →

Repetto back in the Marais!

Repetto just opened a new boutique in the marais… A welcome return after the fire last October destroyed the store on rue du Perche. It was so odd, because I had just been in that store the afternoon before… And then the next day my friend Kasia tweeted about how the store had burned during the night. This new boutique… Read more →

Théâtre des rêves – Dream theater

L’Opéra Garnier… I always dreamed to one day step onto the stage at the famous Parisian theater where so many elegant point shoes have brushed the floor in fervent fouettés… and I did. I did, and I did a pirouette on that most illustrious stage where just minutes before the dancers of the Paris Opera ballet company had been gracefully… Read more →

Une seconde Chance – A Second chance

As much as I love the ballet, never have I ever shed a tear for the heros and heroines, until I saw Aurelie Dupont dancing the choreographie of John Neumeier in La Dame Aux Camelias = the Lady With the Camillas, at the Paris Garnier opera house. I know the novel by Alexandre Dumas fils very well, and did certainly… Read more →
