After 4 years of renovation, the Palais Galliera reopens with an exhibition dedicated to Azzedine Alaïa. This “sculptor of fabrics”, in love with women “who make fashion” whereas he “makes clothes”, has invented new shapes by interplaying with complex stitching. Awarded many times, he brought to the world many top models as Naomi Campbell or Linda Evangelista, and his influence on today’s fashion is undeniable. Until January 26th.
Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera are celebrated at the Musée de l’Orangerie with L’Art en fusion. This exhibition shows how the pieces of these 2 Mexican artists are complementary and why their divorce was impossible despite their separation. Until January 13th.
The Opera de Paris welcomes one of the jewels of the heritage of dance, the “ballet of ballets” as Noureev described it: Sleeping Beauty. Created at St Petersburg by Marius Petipa for the choreography and Tchaikovski for music and inspired by Charles Perrault, this “fairy-tale ballet” was restaged by Noureev who kept the original choreography, in 1989. This show, the fight between the Forces of Good and Evil, is full of splendor, in the ensembles and pas-de-deux as well as in the sets and costumes. Until January 4th at the Opéra Bastille.
