Ten years after his death, the Paris Opera Ballet paid homage to the American choreographer who considered the Paris Opera as his second home after the New York City Ballet. The three pieces performed here illustrate not only the diversity of the choreographer’s repertoire and sources of inspiration, but also his love of music and his all-embracing attitude to the performing arts. Jerome Robbins brought new energy to classical dance, introducing 20th century urban rhythms, confirming its status as a modern entertainment form and instilling it as a force of contemporary theatre.En Sol, set to Maurice Ravel’s Concerto, provided Jerome Robbins with an opportunity to reveal the relaxed, fluid feel so emblematic of his style.In the Night and The Concert are two tributes to Chopin. Robbins transforms Les Nocturnes into In the Night, a long and poetic pas de deux built like a metaphor of love in all its states. The Concert joins the ranks of the few comic ballets in the history of dance. Taking as its point of departure images inspired by some of Chopin’s more fancifully entitled scores, Jerome Robbins’ piano recital is a comic plea for the cause of human vulnerability.Lastly, Benjamin Millepied, who made his dance debut with Robbins in New York, dedicates his second creation for the Paris Opera Ballet, Triade, to him. “Dance is composed of human relations”, Robbins used to say. A worthy heir to his master, Benjamin Millepied matches this credo through a fruitful dialogue with composer Nico Muhly. --LAURE GUILBERT
