Ravel Daphnis and Chloé (complete ballet)

Shimmering and sensual, Daphnis and Chloé is a masterpiece of French impressionistic splendor. Stéphane Denève returns to lead the complete version of Ravel’s love story ballet. Lush and exotic, and brimming with orchestral color, the sweeping music conjures every detail of this mythological tale, from glorious sunrise to hedonistic bacchanal.
