CHANEL AT THE
OPÉRA DE PARIS
Reminiscent of the ties that existed between Gabrielle Chanel and the world of dance, the House of CHANEL was the benefactor at last night’s opening gala for the new choreographic season at the Opéra de Paris. The event brought together the entire company onstage before an audience of dance aficionados. After its presentation by the ballet corps, Decadance by Ohad Naharin will enter the repertoire. A piece featuring costumes by Karl Lagerfeld is composed of excerpts from emblematic creations including Bo/éro, performed by Aurélie Dupont, the ballet director of the Opéra de Paris, and Diana Vishneva, the principal dancer at the Mariinsky Ballet in Saint Petersburg.
