Disappointment….. Disappointed but not surprised: due to the pandemic situation, the four Danse Gala at the Palais Garnier that I had to conduct this month are of course cancelled. Numbers are high indeed in Paris, but culture seems to be….. dangerous…… See you (very) soon beautiful Opéra National de Paris. Let’s wish the best of the best for all the artists during those crazy times. Culture, beauty is what makes us human: kill it, reduce us to a functionality, rentability, and it will be time to replace us by machines…….Respect it, and even with a virus, the world will be more beautiful.
