The Les Grands Ballets 2024-2025 season marks two significant milestones in the company’s history: the 100th birthday of its founder, Ludmilla Chiriaeff, and the 60th anniversary of Fernand Nault’s Nutcracker.

This tribute to Chiriaeff highlights the life and achievements through the artistic brilliance of those she met or who were influenced by her legacy. The works include The Four Temperaments (George Balanchine), Le Funambule (Ginette Laurin), Desire (James Kudelka), and Continuum (Jean Grand-Maître).

“I invite you to experience these works through the lens of love, a feeling so deep that it allows us to touch eternity.”

Ivan Cavallari, Artistic Director of Les Grands Ballet

The season opens with the triple-bill, “Maestro” which includes two pieces by Jiří Kylián – Petite Mort and Sechs Tänze – each one imbued with the playfulness specific to Mozart’s compositions, and Garrett Smith’s Symphony No. 5 set to Beethoven’s composition of the same name.

2025 showcases the company in three story ballets by Marcia Haydée (The Sleeping Beauty), Annabelle Lopez Ochoa (Vendetta), and Marina Villanueva (Don Quixote).
