Inside the exceptional ‘Nuit Blanche’ ballet project

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. This homage to the composer and musician Philip Glass created new bonds between Dior’s Creative Director, dance and the Spring-Summer 2019 collection dedicated to the art of movement.
