Paris’ Palais Garnier Opera House Turns Into a Battle Field

Battle Opera

To celebrate its 350th anniversary, the Paris Opera will be hosting a string of special events, conferences and performances all throughout 2019. As part of this, hip-hop battles will be organized in partnership with nonprofit Juste Debout in Cayenne, London, Toulon, Paris, Le Havre, Lyon, Lille and Réunion Island to choose which amateur and professional dancers will go through to the final at the Palais Garnier opera house on December 26. Capitalizing on the success of Juste Debout, which each year brings together close to 16,000 international spectators at Paris’ AccorHotels Arena, the Paris Opera aims to take advantage of the excitement generated by this innovative formula to shake up the status quo. Total Foundation is supporting this unique event, which offers a perfect illustration of dialogue between institutional and urban cultures, collaboration among artists from different backgrounds, the promotion of young talent and widespread accessibility to the performing arts.
