More about Ballet National de Marseille

The Ballet National de Marseille was founded just a few decades ago in 1972 by dancer and choreographer Roland Petit. The first production of the company was the Pink Floyd Ballet, which was inspired by Petit’s young daughter after she gave him a Pink Floyd Album. The company’s program has continued to embrace modern dance forms.
