François Alu, who has just left the Paris Opera, is playing at the Olympia in Paris on February 5, 2023.
His very first solo performance
François Alu, professional classical dancer, will perform at the Olympia on Sunday February 5, 2023 with his very first solo performance, Complètement Jetés. François Alu, who had recently been named star dancer at the Paris Opera, has just announced that he is leaving the institution after having spent 12 years there. A departure that does not prevent future collaborations. Virtuoso, darling of the audience of the Ballet de l’Opéra, François Alu, 28, joined the company in 2010 and, in four years, experienced a meteoric rise, rising to the rank of « first dancer », preceding the title of star. His fans had been indignant for many years not to see him access the supreme title and to be poorly distributed.
A meteoric rise
The first alone on stage by the dancer is a show that resembles only him, multidisciplinary and without limit. Virtuoso dance solos of course, but also parodies, choreographic delusions, and chiseled texts… He interprets a multitude of characters in a tour de force of 1h20, an explosion of humor, technicality and emotion. Come and immerse yourself in the inner world of one of the most unique ballet dancers of our time.
