Paris Opera Ballet Live Stream: Balanchine and Millepied

The POB's recent performance of George Balanchine's Palais de Cristal (the original version of what became Symphony in C), with sumptuous new costumes by Christian Lacroix in red, midnight blue, green, and "champagne" rather than the now customary black and white, is streaming live over the following channel till December 5:

The choreography is somewhat different from Symphony in C.

Paired with this ballet on the program was a new Daphnis and Chloe to Ravel's score by Benjamin Millepied. You can see fairly long excerpts here

and some of you will be able to see the ballet in its entirety, but for others it will be geo-blocked.
