Feel the emotion of the ballet 'Nuit Blanche', from behind-the-scenes to the closing performance at the Opera House in Rome. A voyage of discovery, from the savoir-faire that goes into creating the hand-painted flowers on Maria Grazia Chiuri's creations, to choreography by Sébastien Bertaud and performances by Eleonora Abbagnato and Friedemann Vogel.
Monsieur Dior himself cultivated a lifelong passion for dance and also designed costumes for the Ballet at the Paris Opera. Today, Maria Grazia Chiuri follows in his footsteps by creating costumes for 'Nuit Blanche', an homage to the musician and composer Philip Glass.
