The dancers prepare on September 27, 2018 before the opening of the annual gala at the Opéra Garnier in Paris. Laughter, rest, tenderness: a relaxed atmosphere reigns behind the scenes of the Opéra Garnier a few minutes from the traditional Paris Opera Ballet parade at the Palais Garnier on September 27, 2018. This carefree moment contrasts with the discipline of iron of this unique performance in the world of dance. Each year, it brings together the 154 ballet dancers and dozens of “little Opera rats” (dance school students) in a sumptuous show, to the music of the “Marche” des Troyens, an opera by Berlioz.
