About

Given as a world premiere at the Paris Opera House in 2010, La Petite Danseuse de Degas (literally, Degas' Little Dancer) pays tribute to the "dancers' painter."..

This ballet by Patrice Bart, who worked as a Ballet master for the Opéra de Paris from 1987 to 2011, stages the fourteen-year-old ballerina who posed for Edgar Degas's canvas and also for his sculpture The Little Fourteen-Year-Old Dancer, currently exhibited at the Orsay Museum. The idea of the ballet was born in Martine Kahane's mind, when in the end of the 90s, the museum asked the sewing shop of the Opéra de Paris to restore the tutu of the wax statue.
