Entering the bowels of the prestigious Palais Garnier, Frederick Wiseman follows, over the course of twelve weeks, the production of seven ballets by the world-renowned Paris Opera Ballet. From Angelin Prejlocaj’s rendering of Medea to Pina Bausch’s Orpheus and Eurydyce, this documentary navigates through the whole structure of the Parisian institution that celebrates its 350th anniversary in 2019.
