    Location: Palais des Congrès Paris

    RUSSIAN NATIONAL OPERA: The most performed ballet in the world, Swan Lake is back in 2022 for a grand tour in France and Europe. As in previous years, a new Russian company will present this timeless classical masterpiece. This ballet plunges us into the crazy love story of Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette. Odette is unfortunately trapped by the famous spell of the magician Rothbart: she turns into a swan by day and becomes a woman again by night. Only the promise of eternal love can free her from this spell. Siegfried promises Odette to marry him at the ball given in her honor. Will they escape the tricks of Rothbart and his daughter Odile? Will the Prince manage to save his bride? Created in 1875 by the Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky, it was in 1895 with the revival by choreographer Marius Petipa that Swan Lake became the greatest classical success of all time. Between Pas de deux, romantic duets and the Dance of the Little Swans, the dancers, accompanied by the orchestra, will interpret this masterful work with elegance. A symbol of romantic ballet, Swan Lake has enchanted and continues to enchant generations of audiences.

  • Damien Hirst Exposition, Cherry Blossoms

    0 out of 5

    Date : From 6 July 2021 to 2 January 2022
    Lieu : Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, 261 Boulevard Raspail, 75014 Paris

    Price : Tarif plein 11€

    La Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain est heureuse de dévoiler Cerisiers en Fleurs, l’exceptionnelle nouvelle série de tableaux de Damien Hirst.
    Une célébration de la couleur au milieu du chaos
    Cerisiers en Fleurs est la première exposition institutionnelle de Damien Hirst en France. La série des Cerisiers en Fleurs [Cherry Blossoms] réinterprète avec une ironie joyeuse le sujet traditionnel et populaire de la représentation florale. Sur la toile, Damien Hirst mêle touches épaisses et projections de peinture faisant référence tant à l’impressionnisme et au pointillisme qu’à l’action painting. Les toiles monumentales, entièrement recouvertes par les couleurs vives et saturées, enveloppent le spectateur dans un vaste paysage végétal oscillant entre figuration et abstraction. Les Cerisiers en Fleurs sont à la fois un détournement et un hommage aux grands mouvements artistiques de la fin du XIXème et du XXème siècle. Ils s’inscrivent dans les réflexions picturales que Damien Hirst mène depuis toujours. Dans son atelier londonien, l’artiste dit « se plonger dans les toiles et les bombarder de peinture de bout en bout », travaillant plusieurs tableaux en même temps et revenant sans cesse sur certains qu’il garde auprès de lui de longs mois après leur achèvement. Après y avoir consacré trois années entières, c’est en novembre 2020 que Damien Hirst achève la série des Cerisiers en Fleurs : « La pandémie m’a permis de vivre avec mes peintures et de prendre le temps de les contempler, jusqu’à ce que je sois certain qu’elles étaient toutes terminées ». La série complète comprend 107 toiles (toutes reproduites dans le catalogue de l’exposition) réparties en panneaux simples, diptyques, triptyques, quadriptyques et même un hexaptyque, toutes de très grand format. L’exposition, qui répond à une invitation d’Hervé Chandès à Damien Hirst lors d’une rencontre à Londres en 2019, présente 30 tableaux qu’ils ont choisis ensemble. Envahissant l’espace de Jean Nouvel, les toiles vibrantes immergent le spectateur dans la peinture.

    Edmond Rostand is not yet thirty but already has two children and a lot of anxiety. He has not written anything for two years. So, in despair, he proposes to the great Constant Coquelin a new play, a heroic comedy, in verse, for the holidays. The only problem was that it had not yet been written. Ignoring the whims of the actresses, the demands of his Corsican producers, the jealousy of his wife, the love affair of his best friend and the lack of enthusiasm of everyone around him, Edmond starts writing this play that nobody believes in. For the moment, he only has the title: Cyrano de Bergerac.

    Location: Musée Jacquemart-André

    Dates: September 10, 2021 to January 24, 2022

    Prices: From €10

    In the fall of 2021, the Jacquemart-André Museum will celebrate the creative genius of Sandro Botticelli (1445 – 1510) and the activity of his workshop, by exposing some forty works of this refined painter accompanied by some paintings of his Florentine contemporaries on which Botticelli had a special influence. The career of Botticelli, who became one of the greatest artists of Florence, bears witness to the influence and profound changes that transformed the city under the Medici.
    Botticelli is undoubtedly one of the most famous painters of the Italian Renaissance despite the part of mystery that still surrounds his life and the activity of his studio. Tirelessly, he alternated unique creation and serial production completed by his many assistants.
    The exhibition will show the importance of this workshop practice, a laboratory full of ideas and training, typical of the Italian Renaissance. She will present Botticelli as a creator, but also as an entrepreneur and trainer.
    Following a chronological and thematic order, the itinerary will illustrate Botticelli’s personal stylistic development, the links between his work and the culture of his time, as well as the influence he himself exerted on the Florentine artists of the Quattrocento.
    The exhibition will benefit from loans from prestigious institutions such as the Louvre Museum, the National Gallery of London, the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam, the Vatican Museums and Libraries, the Uffizi, the Galleria Sabauda of Turin, the Galleria dell’Accademia and the National Bargello Museum in Florence, the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, the Alte Pinakothek in Munich and the Städel Museum in Frankfurt.
