Support projects - Join the cercle Noverre!


The Cercle Noverre brings together philanthropists who are passionate about both classical and contemporary dance, and who wish to specifically support the Paris Opera Ballet and the Ballet activities.

For over three centuries, the Paris Opera Ballet has been nurturing a tradition for excellence, built upon a strong repertoire and numerous artistic commissions. The company is one of the youngest worldwide, with an average age of 25 of its 154 dancers.

The Cercle Noverre allows its members to become closely involved in the life of the Company, by entering the intimacy of rehearsals, both on stage and in studios, and discovering the unique world of the Paris Opera Ballet during meeting with dancers, choreographers and ballet masters.

Throughout the 2021-2022 season, the Cercle Noverre will support the creation of Le Rouge et le Noir by Pierre Lacotte, the triple-bill of Ashton/Eyal/Nijinski and the first performances by the Paris Opera Ballet of Uprising and In your rooms by Hofesh Shechter.
