Program notes

Put on your dancing shoes and enjoy an all-star lineup in a breathtaking Gala des Étoiles to celebrate the competition's 50th anniversary! The prestigious Prix de Lausanne has been a launchpad toward international renown for talented young dancers since its founding in 1973, helping jumpstart the careers of ballet legends like Nancy Raffa, Darcey Bussell, Carlos Acosta, and Maria Kochetkova. To mark this important milestone, former laureates of the competition return for a star-studded selection of beloved numbers, featuring favorite moments from classics like Swan LakeGiselle, and The Nutcracker, as well as contemporary masterpieces by David Dawson, Katarzyna Kozielska, and Christopher Wheeldon!
