The cultural and political relations between the neighboring countries of France and Germany are extremely diverse. As part of a “soirée française” in French, journalist and author Jeanne Rubner will be talking to Laurent Hilaire, director of the Bayerisches Staatsballett. The conversation will focus on his professional career from the “Étoile” at the Paris Opera to the ballet directorships in Moscow and Munich; on ballet as an art form that transcends language barriers; and on formative personalities that Laurent Hilaire has encountered on his career to date.

The discussion will be held exclusively in French.
