Spring is the best time of year in Paris. Everyone is excited to don their new clothes and show a bit more skin, and terraces fill up in the early afternoon and stay busy until late, even in the middle of the week. It’s the start of a new season of cultural and sporting events all over town, so if you’re getting dizzy trying to sort out what’s worth your attention, here’s our calendar of the key things to do this season.
EVERYTHING YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST DO IN PARIS THIS SPRING
Refined culture meets street art when the classical Paris ballet company takes on the challenge of bringing life to three iconic pieces from the American school of dance. The set for Merce Cunningham’s 1968 Walkaround Time is based on design by Marcel Duchamp while the visionary dancer/choreographer/creative consultant Stephen Galloway has created the costumes for the two Forsythe performances, Trio and Herman Schmerman.
With this number of brilliant minds involved, the result should be amazing. If not, you still get to spend time inside the beautiful baroque Palais Garnier.
