The Paris Opera Ballet is one of the world’s great ballet companies. The film follows the rehearsals and performances of seven ballets: Genus by Wayne McGregor, Le Songe de Medée by Angelin Preljocaj, La Maison de Bernarda by Mats Ek, Paquita by Pierre Lacotte, Casse Noisette by Rudolph Nureyev, Orphée and Eurydice by Pina Bausch, and Romeo and Juliette by Sasha Waltz. This sumptuous, transfixing film shows the work involved in administering the company and the coordinated and collaborative work of choreographers, ballet masters, dancers, musicians, and costume, set, and lighting designers.

“One of the finest dance films ever made.  A feast for ballet lovers.”
A.O. Scott, the New York Times

“If you don’t already swoon over this art form, [La Danse] will make you wonder what took you so long.”
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
