Opera garnier, the place to see and be seen...

October 21 at 8 p.m., the place to be in Paris is the Opéra Garnier! I’m there with my fiancée Caroline to see Rain, the work by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, a major figure on the international choreographic scene. Sitting in the 15th row of the orchestra, Caroline is ultra elegant in her dress designed by Lagerfield for Chanel. All Paris is here. It’s just not possible to miss an opening night at the Opera, especially as it’s so difficult to be one of the happy few to receive an invitation. And, the evening will end with a platter of Oléron oysters at the Bar à Huîtres Garnier.

22opera-p octobre. Yesterday, an unforgettable evening last night at the Opera. With Rain, Anne Teresa de Kersmaeker, gives us a work of rare intensity and refined purity…. The choreographer leads the dancers to transmit the rhythmic pulsations of Music for Eighteen Musicians, by Steve Reich, a quintessential work performed here by the Ensemble Ictus. On stage, music and dance sweep the performers along in a perpetual surge of movement, a dizzying and joyful race which seems to “overflow with life. For all those still not in Paris, check the Opera website. However, I think that Rain continues until January.

As far as oysters go, after the performance… I don’t have to tell you that they’re fabulous right now! Without lemon, of course, accompanied by a nicely chilled Chardonnay.

A bientot, Maxime
