Based on the Alexandre Dumas novel that also inspired the stories of Verdi's La Traviata and Hollywood's Moulin Rouge, John Neumeier creates a riveting dance drama around the famous woman of lore, La Dame aux camelias. The passionate tale of Marguerite Gautier and Armand Duval unfolds ingeniously through a drama-within-a-drama as they meet at the theatre during a performance of Manon Lescaut. So begin their romantic adventures in Paris, brought to life by Neumeier's intense and refined choreographic language. Chopin's ravishing music highlights this exceptional neo-classical ballet, featuring the star dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet. This lavish production, filmed live at the Palais Garnier, is all about love, passion, danger and glorious dancing from one of the best ballet companies in the world.
