Considered to be one of the world's finest ensembles, the ballet is run by the grande dame of French dance, Brigitte Lefèvre, who is herself a product of the Paris Opera Ballet School and a former member of the corps. The company's origins can be traced back to 1661 with the foundation of the Académie Royale de Danse and the Ballet de l'Opéra (1713) by King Louis XIV of France. Its repertoire is extensive, ranging from the major romantic and classical ballets to creations by contemporary choreographers.
