Cathy-
Do you (or anyone else out there) know what the annual budget is for the Paris Opera Ballet? I've searched the internet and can not find that information.

Best regards,
David

I don't where you can find the annual budget. Before the Mortier's arrival, you can find it on the official website of POB, but now you find it nowhere.
This season is more interesting that the actual season, more clasical and neo-classical. But I'm not thrilled by it. I'm glad to discover Neumeier's Lady of Camelias but it's the end of the season.

David, I too had a search on Google and also a look at the French Ministry of Culture website, but couldn't find anything.

I'm assuming you are interested in orders of magnitude, rather than exactitude. From the dim and distant past, I have a memory that the full Paris Opera grant was greater than the annual US National Endowment for the Arts budget, suggesting around $150m.

For comparison, the Royal Opera House now receives around $50m per annum, which is around 30% of total income. Given that:

- the Paris Opera has two major venues, as opposed to one in London

- POB has many more dancers (is it around 140, Cathy?) than the Royal's 92

- I would imagine the Paris Opera subsidy %age is around double or more that of the Royal, especially looking at ticket price comparisons.

Where does that leave us?

RO - $50m

scale up by factors of 2 for %age subsidy, 1.5 greater cost base due to staff and building, gives:

$50x2x1.5 = $150m

So both guesstimates for the entire Paris Opera subsidy comes out at $150m (I didn' fix it, honest!!)

What about Paris Opera Ballet alone? Well, the Royal Opera grant is no longer split between opera and ballet, but when it was, around 45% of the total was for ballet. If POB is similar, then that gives a subsidy of the order of $67.5m.

Given all the guesses here, there is clearly an error bound. I would be inclined to say that the Paris Opera Ballet grant was probably within the range $50m-$80m per annum.

Given the quality of the dancers and the mix of 19th, 20th classics and innovative work, it's money well spent in my book.

It has just been reported on a Russian web site dedicated to the Benois de la Danse awards, (and perhaps those in Paris were already aware) that Manuel Legris has undergone knee surgery and (if I correctly understood) had his meniscus removed. Apparently during rehearsal on April 15 the pain was so bad that he stopped, and went to the hospital. It is said he feels fine at present time. Legris was slated to perform at the Benois Laureates performance in Moscow on April 27 and will not be attending.

Hello,

I would be very grateful if anyone in Paris or France could tell me the performance dates for Laurent Hilaire in the Roland Petit programme?

Thanks!

Laurent Hilaire's dates haven't been given yet, we only know Manuel Legris's ones (they're on his website).

Laurent Hilaire doesn't dance in Petit's ballets evening. He must dance Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet. since last march Laurent Hilaire is Ballet Master of POB and just guest etoile.

Thank you very much for this information. I knew about Legris's performances that I intend to see in July.
Very sad about Hilaire's retirement, but, on the other hand, happy to see that he will be staying in the company as ballet master.

Dear all,
I'd like to ask you to inform as soon as possible about the dates of Laurent Hialire in Le Parc and Caligula.

Now Ms. Lefèvre has taken a still greater gamble by recruiting Nicolas Le Riche, 33, one of the company's star dancers but a novice choreographer, to create a five-act ballet with no fewer than 23 dancers around the story of the crazed Roman emperor Caligula.

Certainly no one could accuse Ms. Lefèvre of timidity - I'm struggling to think of a previous example of a commission for an evening-length work from a choreographer with only one previous creation.

The comments of the French critics seem quite mild: "too intellectual" and "it wasn't at all bad," but...lacked intensity. Indeed for a second work of any length, I'd say that was damn good.
