The Paris Opera is holding a soirée exceptionelle on 4 October to honour Brigitte Lefèvre, who served as the company’s general administrator from 1992 - 1995, and as Director of Dance from 1995 - 2014. The programme will comprise Forsythe’s Woundwork 1 and Pas./parts, an extract from Ivan Clustine’s Suite de danse, Jacques Garnier’s Aunis and Lander’s Etudes, before concluding with the traditional Défilé. Lefèvre’s successor is Benjamin Millepied.
