A repertoire reflecting the trends of contemporary ballet. A company that remains loyal to the very essence of classical ballet, but that is resolutely focused on creativity, both in its approach to the great classics, and through the new works it brings audiences today.

A company presenting both new and repertory works, under the artistic direction of Gradimir Pankov since 2000, founded in 1957 by Ludmilla Chiriaeff.

Since its birth, LES GRANDS BALLETS has presented a wide panorama of the ballet repertoire, from classics to the great works of the 20th century, from Gisèle to the works of Balanchine and Nijinsky.

The company has promoted burgeoning artists that went on to become renowned talents, including Fernand Nault, James Kudelka, Édouard Lock, and Ginette Laurin. Today, it stands out by presenting works by emerging artists and today’s top choreographers, such as Jiří Kylián, Nacho Duato, and Ohad Naharin.

LES GRANDS BALLETS embodies an innovative and bold approach, and is resolutely focused on creativity, both in its approach to the great classics, and through the new works it brings audiences today.
