About the Movie

Filmed over the course of one year, La Danse documents the daily goings-on at the world's most prestigious ballet company, the Paris Opera Ballet. From the mundanity of board meetings to the majesty of performance, director Frederick Wiseman leaves no aspect of the company undocumented in his all-encompassing peek behind the concert hall's velvet curtain. Incorporating preparations for and performances of seven ballets including Orpheus and Eurydice by Pina Bausch, Angelin Preljocaj's Medea and The Nutcracker, as envisioned by Rudolf Nureyev, all captured in the purely observational cinema vérité style. As much a joyful ode to the beauty of the dance medium as it is a documentation of the entire company's unflappable work ethic, La Danse is a spectacular and moving hymn to a glorious artform.
