Enter the heart of creation and surprise the artists in action

The Paris Opera offers Arop members the privilege of being able to observe the work of the artists and the development of a production at different moments: during work sessions, pre-dress rehearsals and dress rehearsals. The dress rehearsal is the last rehearsal before the first performance of a show.


Borodin’s only opera, this great Russian epic, best known for its Polovtsian Dances, questions the responsibilities of a leader with regard to his people. Having ceded power to his despotic brother in-law in order to go to war, Igor is taken prisoner with his son. From his refusal to negotiate with the enemy to his return home, the prince’s deeds invite us to reconsider our own moral values. By divesting the work of folklore of the most elementary kind, Barrie Kosky’s production highlights a universal need for ethics.
